Look at the power box on the extreme right of the photo. Based on the way the box is bulged outward, it looks like those bus bars were the source of ignition for the hydrogen.

Looks not good. And does not look like one would expect for inside a nuclear power plant. Looks more like an abandoned research lab before cleanup.

Just needs a dustpan and a broom.

This photo probably sheds a lot of light on what happened, to the demolition analysis experts out there.

Yeah, just a few dozen homeless men to clean things up and absorb absorb a few Sieverts and all will be well.

The health and labor ministry says six other workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant may have received radiation doses above the allowable emergency level.

Tokyo Electric Power Company reported to the health ministry on Monday on the results of the latest checks of workers at the power plant. Messier still is what is happening to these men up there: The ministry says the provisional amount of radiation exposure was up to 497 millisieverts for each of six TEPCO male employees. The maximum allowable dose was formerly 100 millisieverts, but it was raised to 250 after the crisis started.

One of the men was working in the control center, while the other five were performing maintenance work.

Six additional workers received doses of between 200 and 250 millisieverts, and 88 were exposed to between 100 and 200 millisieverts.

Brave beyond.

Send the bio-robots (ie TEPCO staff) in to clean up this mess. Just look at it - what a disgrace!

And to think they are the homeless who may be doing the cleaning of this disaster. Beauty! Soon they that the day-to-day are discriminated by the living conditions. In many banks of rest squares are divided by a stick in the middle so they can not stand there.
