The Department of Energy released a statement Wednesday on the fire at the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant.
According to the release, a mine rescue team entered WIPP and confirmed that the fire was extinguished.
Late in the day, WIPP officials were working on a plan for safe re-entry to the underground storage area, but no time frame had been determined at that time.
A joint information center was established in Carlsbad. Public inquiries about WIPP can be made to the center by calling 575-234-7380 or 800-336-9477.
Other information can be found at WIPP’s website, wipp.energy.gov.
