America’s nuclear waste dump in New Mexico is found to have serious safety issues.

The U.S. government´s nuclear waste repository in New Mexico has major
issues in fire training and firefighting vehicles, with its fleet in
disrepair after years of neglect, according to an investigation by the U.S.
Energy Department´s Office of Inspector General.

The investigation was
spurred by allegations regarding fire protection concerns at the
repository, which is the backbone of a multibillion-dollar effort to clean
up Cold War-era waste from past nuclear research and bomb making at
national laboratories and defense sites across the U.S.
