Moscow (Reuter) - A fire broke out at a secret nuclear fuel plant in the Urals but it was quickly brought under control, the Russian Atomic Energy Ministry said. The blaze occurred at the Mayak nuclear fuel manufacturing plant in the town of Ozersk, one of three named by Greenpeace last month as the possible origin of a small quantity of weapons- grade plutonium seized in Germany.
