The plant shut down automatically at 3:55 a.m. after a fire broke out in the plant’s main transformer, according to a press release from owner Entergy Nuclear. The fire was extinguished at 6:32 a.m., the company reported.

It doesn't appear anyone was hurt nor was any radiation released. But, this is the second time in a week this plant has had an emergency. Considering the mess in Japan, and the fact that nuclear plant meltdowns are top of mind for all of us right now, could be this plant needs to be investigated a little more...

I think they should air on the side of caution and shut this puppy down for a full inspection, just like they with bridges etc.

Something is wrong at that place.
Here's the latest inspection results:


On June 30, 2012, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) completed an inspection at your James A. FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plant (FitzPatrick). The enclosed inspection report documents the inspection results which were discussed on July 20, 2012, with you and other members of your staff. The inspection examined activities conducted under your license as they relate to safety and compliance with the Commission’s rules and regulations and with the conditions of your license. The inspectors reviewed selected procedures and records, observed activities, and interviewed personnel. The report documents two self-revealing findings of very low safety significance (Green). Both of these findings were determined to involve violations of NRC requirements. However, because of the very low safety significance and because they are entered into your corrective action program, the NRC is treating these findings as non-cited violations (NCVs) consistent with Section 2.3.2 of the NRC Enforcement Policy.

The report is 54 pages long.

I'll second that, the last thing we need right now is more crap hitting the fan. I wasn't even aware of a nuclear facility up there.
