Fuel pool heating may have produced steam at Fukushima Daiichi No.3 plant-TEPCO

March 16 (Reuters) - A fuel pool at the No.3 reactor at the Fukushima Daiichi plant in Japan may have heated and produced steam, the plant’s operator Tokyo Electric Power said on Wednesday.

Media images earlier showed white smoke drifting from the Daiichi nuclear power plant, crippled by last week’s devastating earthquake and ensuing tsunami that struck Japan. (Reporting by Shinichi Saoshiro; Editing by Joseph Radford)
