KIEV, April 29. /TASS/. The radiation level is safe in the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Exclusion Zone where a forest fire broke out on Tuesday, the acting head of Ukraine's emergencies service said on Wednesday.
"The background radiation level is normal, there is no threat," Zoryan Shkiryak said.
He said the fire had been localised and the situation was under control.
Shkiryak said that aircraft were dumping water on the flames.
The Exclusion Zone covers an area of approximately 2,600 square kilometers around the site of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
