Wildfire rips through Chernobyl’s exclusion zone, raging just TWO MILES from crippled nuclear plant

Ukrainian firefighters are struggling to contain a blaze raging near Pripyat, in the contaminated area heavily hit by the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, as a wall of fire creeps dangerously close to its abandoned nuclear power plant.

Due to strong winds on Monday, the flames crossed over a firebreak and reached Yanov railway station near the town of Pripyat, the agency in charge of the exclusion zone said in a statement. Maps show that the station is located just three kilometers (1.9 miles) away from the ill-fated power plant.
