Guarding Against Chernobyl's Radioactive Forest Fires


Thirty years after the Chernobyl nuclear accident, Ukrainian firefighters remain on high alert to prevent another disaster. It's their job to stop fires from breaking out in the contaminated forests around the decommissioned power plant. A major blaze could release even more radiation into the atmosphere than the nuclear accident itself. (Producers: Christian Borys/ Stuart Greer. Camera: Yura Melko. Archive: AP)
