Explosion at French Marcoule nuclear plant.

One person has been killed and four others injured at a fire at a nuclear waste site in France. A security cordon has been set up around the perimeter of the reprocessing plant where plutonium used for nuclear weapons is reprocessed into fuel for nuclear reactors. Because of this there is no danger of a meltdown as there would be at a nuclear power plant however the escape of radioactive material is a concern.
