From ABC News


Hours after the fire burned itself out early Monday, moon-suited teams from the Nevada National Guard and the Las Vegas Police Department's ARMOR unit got to within about 6 feet of a kettle-shaped crater in what had been a 10-foot earthen cap and took radiation and hazardous-materials readings.

All of the measurements were negative, Cage said.


It sounds like an abundance of caution was used, but there was no danger.

It's been known there was no radiation released since the 21st it looks like. Lot's of articles out there.


They didn't call in monitor teams to declare the place safe, they called them in because stuff buried in the trenches was coming out of the trenches.

They can tell me all day it wasn't radioactive, nothing else is buried there. They are nuclear waste storage trenches, not the local landfill.

They're hoping to discover what is in the trenches by looking at archived paperwork.

If this video of a British 'low level' waste trench is anything to go by the paperwork will be false.

Yeah - Austerity and outsourcing. Ain't it grand......

How can fire burn without oxygen

Why don't they just suffocate this fire unless we are not being told what's really going on

CONTACT 13: Video released of explosions at low-level radioactive waste facility


We don't know exactly what is buried in trench 14. We don't know what these explosions kicked up into the air...


Looks like it's time to stock-up on Potassium Iodide.

So it looks like its a bad situation. . . . I dont know how this will end but I do know they cant get those nuclear materials to stop reacting. . . .

St. Louis landfill fire threatens nuclear waste area.
Officials are trying to figure out a way to keep that fire from the West Lake landfill where nuclear waste is buried.

In other news there was like 10,000 gallons of nuclear waste which is being tested to see if its radioactive that spilled out of the landfill above ground that workers are trying to clean up.

A nuclear industry. What could possibly go wrong.

I'd like to point out here that all the most severe problems we face are caused by people who have been told their 'education' has somehow made them wise. Then they throw their hands up and say, 'No one could have expected that to happen". In spite of all the less educated/brainwashed people who said, "THIS IS TOO DANGEROUS!"

So what gets me is that they kept it all secret until now. The people didnt even know they were living around toxic nuclear waste! EPIC FAIL!

Well, since it's low level waste, your wish is my command! They're not 'reacting' at all, since there's no critical mass.

A radioactive isotope's gonna radiate. But 'reacting' is a different thing altogether.

BTW, a radioactive material may or may not be 'toxic', which also is a different thing.

eta: since you seem to be a bit at sea over terms, 'low level waste' isn't old fuel rods and the like. We're talking contaminated clothing, wipe rags, wash-down water and the like. No green glow, no heat, no toxic avenger melting, nothing. It's a pile of uniforms and glassware.

etaa: the St Louis landfill is totally off-topic, as it's got nothing whatever to do with the fire near Las Vegas. Plopping a somewhat similar sounding yet totally different reference in is a bit deceptive, unless you didn't realize they're not the same event.

So you mean wash rags have been burning underground all this time? Please claify?

As you're conflating two totally separate things, the Westlake landfill fire and the Beatty storage site fire, it's not possible to know which one you're referring to.

But it's not like it was secret. SOME people don't know what county they live in. That's not 'all secret', it's ignorance. The Westlake issue has been a freaking superfund site since the late 80s/early 90s. It's not like it's not public.

Since you chose to conflate Westlake and Beatty, you're going to have to be specific from now on, or no one's going to know what you're referring to.

So 40000 times the background radiation according to the vid.....thats alot just curiously where is that waste headed to ?...hopefully not into underground storage trenches hey......

If its waste and not pockets of methane going off. Hard to tell from just the video.

The problem with it being methane is there would be just one bang, not multiple poofs. Those individual poofs could be drums of waste cooking off, imo.

Problem with containing radioactive contamination, it decays and corrodes, producing hydrogen gas, which will find a spark, sooner or later.


It looks like water hit metallic sodium.
Metallic sodium is used in nuclear research.

If they buried "waste" in trenches, pretty sure its radioactive.
