Wildfire Hits Nuclear Site

The Woolsey Fire, which began on November 8, has destroyed hundreds of homes on the outskirts of Los Angeles, burning more than 150 square miles. Business Insider reports part of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory burned in the fire. The research site had a partial nuclear meltdown in 1959 that contaminated the soil and groundwater with radioactive particles and carcinogens. State and federal officials do not believe toxic chemicals were released into the air as a result of the recent fire, but some activists say the fire could very well have caused toxins to mix with the smoke and ash in the air.
