The abnormal rise in temperature in a reactor at the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant has stopped, apparently because more water has been injected into the crippled reactor, according to Tokyo Electric Power Co. [...] the cause of the increased temperature remained unclear. [...] According to TEPCO, the volume of water being injected was far less than usual. It is possible that the way water was injected into the reactor might have changed around the time of the pipe repairs, and that water did not reach some of the fuel. TEPCO also speculated that the fuel, which had melted and then solidified, might have cracked due to some shock or dropped down and changed shape.

I think the OP is a little confused. The temp. increase is happening in reactor 2 at Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Power Plant, Also know as Fukushima Daiichi. Fukushima No.2 Nuclear Power Plant or Fukushima Daini is located 12 miles to the south.

By #1 plant they mean fukushima Daiichi. Fukushima Daini is the #2 plant. #1 plant reactor #2 is Daiichi #2 reactor. Don't sweat it. It's confusing, I know. Daini is another 4 reactors 5 miles south on the coast. So reactor #2 at Daiichi is cookin. criticality
