Snip: BRIDGMAN The Nuclear Regulatory Commission has launched a special
inspection Team to review events that led to a fire Saturday night at the
Cook Nuclear Plan and to help determine why part of a fire suppression
system later failed.
Snip: Workers shut down the reactor after a malfunction in the Unit 1
main turbine generator led to high vibrations and loud rumbling. The
vibrations led to a generator hydrogen leak that ignited, Cook spokesman
Bill Schalk said....
Snip: Mitlyng said workers determined that a huge pipe that is part of
the fire protection system had ruptured and that one of two water storage
tanks had been pumped dry.
