Tokyo, Mar 16 (AFP) A fresh fire broke out at a reactor of Japan's quake-hit Fukushima No 1 nuclear power plant early today, operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) said.

An employee confirmed smoke was pouring from the roof of the number-four reactor at the plant, a TEPCO spokesman told reporters.

"We immediately informed local authorities and the fire department about it," the spokesman said. "We are battling the fire now."

A blaze and explosion hit the same reactor yesterday, causing a crack in the roof.

The government has separately reported apparent damage to part of the container shielding the number-two reactor at Fukushima 250 kilometres northeast of Tokyo.

Japan is frantically working to avert a nuclear meltdown after Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami cut power to the ageing plant and knocked out cooling systems.
