A fire broke out in an air-drying unit inside the Temelin nuclear station compound Tuesday afternoon, and was quickly put out by the station's staff, a spokesman said Wednesday. The incident posed no danger to the plant's operation and safety, Temelin spokesman Marek Svitak said. The fire was caused by the overheating of the components in an air-drying station about 1 kilometer (700 yards) outside the actual reactor building, Svitak said.
