CONTINUED: State of emergency declared at Japan nuke plant - World news - Asia-Pacific - msnbc.comTOKYO — The Japanese government issued a state of emergency at a nuclear power plant Friday after a cooling system failure in the wake of the giant earthquake and tsunami off the east coast of the Pacific nation.
An administrator at the Tohoku Electric Power Co's Onagawa facility said the process for the cooling reactor is "not going as planned," adding that "nuclear emergency situation" has been declared. The company asked people nearby to stay calm, the official TV news channel NHK reported.
A fire broke out at the plant following the quake, the Kyodo news agency said. Prior to the Kyodo report, the company had said it had not received information on whether there had been any problems at the nuclear power plant after the disaster.
Separately, Fukushima Prefecture, the site of a Tokyo Electric Power nuclear power plant, said on Friday that the plant's reactor cooling system was functioning, denying an earlier report that it was malfunctioning.
