Director Charlie McMillan reiterated three things concerning the Los Alamos National Laboratory during a noon press conference today at Ashley Pond.
The lab director, who has only been on the job since June 1, said there are currently no fires on the lab site, the nuclear materials are safe at the lab and that there has been no release of hazardous material.
“I want to say thank you to the elected representatives who have been engaged in this process,” McMillan said. “And I want to say thank you to our neighbors in Santa Fe and Espanola.”
Since the Las Canchos fire started Sunday, one small spot fire started at TA-49, but was extinguished within the hour Monday.
