A Los Angeles journalist’s photographs are providing evidence of how the destructive Woosley wildfire could be spreading toxic and deadly contamination.
KCAL9’s Stu Mundel’s photos show the fire beginning in the proximity of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory, or SSFL. The consequences attached to such a realization are disastrous for the surrounding communities which have long fought the laboratory’s alleged contamination issue.
Southern California Edison reported a disturbance the Chatsworth substation, which is located on SSFL property, a mere two minutes prior to a fire erupting. In 1959, a Sodium Reactor Experiment reactor partially melted down in the same location. KCAL9’s Stu Mundel posted pictures of the incident here:
The Edison report says that a “Chatsworth substation” incident took place on Thursday, at 2:22 pm. The Woosley fire began at 2:24 pm on the same day.
Chatsworth Substation Located On Top Of Previous Nuclear Meltdown
The Chatsworth substation sits within the perimeter of the Boeing Rocketdyne Santa Susana complex. The substation is approximately three football fields west of the Woosley fire starting point. Likewise, the substation is equally approximately three football fields east of the SRE complex, the site of the 1959 nuclear meltdown.
The substations purpose was to provide electricity to the reactor. This electricity helped to power the main grid. This, of course, was the case prior to the meltdown incident.
What does all of this mean?
Woosley Fire May Be One Massive Radioactive, Contaminated Event The Woosley fire’s potential starting point is ground zero for gargantuan nuclear contamination. Over the years, according to Denise Duffield, Associate Director of Physicians for..
