Statement regarding a small on-site fire at Dounreay

  13 March 2014

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) was informed by Dounreay Site Restoration Limited (DSRL) yesterday (12 March) that there had been a small on-site fire, involving low-level waste, within the Equipment Maintenance and Decontamination Facility. It had been extinguished by the site fire brigade.

SEPA was informed as it is a condition of DSRL's licence that they must inform us of any events that could breach the conditions of their permit. Currently there is no evidence that there has been any release of activity to the environment.
