Caught On Camera: Fire At Fukushima?

We are by no means experts at identifying instances of fire caught on camera under low illumination conditions, but the following compressed 3 minute video from the official Tepco YouTube feed (where 1 second of the clip represents 20 seconds in real time) showing the Fukushima nuclear power plant between 8:00pm and 9:00 pm last night, and particularly the segment 1:16 into the clip and continuing for about 30 seconds (or about 6 minutes in the real world), certainly looks disturbing.

That said, we are confident Tepco has a canned and ready for dissemination explanation which soothes away fears that in addition to free gamma rays, the Fukushima sarcophagus is now also in the flambe a la carte business.

We can't wait to hear it.
