Three new wildfires have broken out in the radiation-contaminated evacuation zone around the wrecked Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine. Officials said the fires, which started near the site of the world’s worst nuclear accident 34 years ago, were small and posed no threat to facilities holding radioactive waste. The Emergencies Ministry did not give an area for the fires or say how they started, but said they were being fanned by gusty winds.
