Fiery Explosion at Japan Nuclear Plant

The race to contain a nuclear crisis at Japan’s most crippled reactor became even more dangerous on Tuesday, with two workers missing after the latest blast. The plant, named Fukushima, was initially damaged during Friday’s earthquake. After the newest explosion, its roof became cracked and its radioactive core overheated to dangerous levels, raising fears of a nuclear meltdown. A fire broke out at the plant as well, according to Japanese media.
