    Beware of "extenuating circumstances" — while the fire led to a new federal fire protection law for nuclear power stations, the three Browns Ferry units do not meet the law's requirements for use of multiple manual safing systems in the same fire zone (fire barriers, smoke detectors and automated suppression; or a minimum separation of.   The two events are hardly comparable. As for the answer, Chernobyl. I won't even resort to the fact that nobody has died from radiation from Fukushima(some say people could eventually develop cancer), where as up to could due to ra.
