(Reuters) – An explosion at the French nuclear site of Marcoule on Monday injured four people, France’s ASN nuclear safety watchdog said, but local police said there was no risk of contamination.

Marcoule is a nuclear waste management site that does not include any reactors. The explosion took place near a furnace, an ASN spokesperson told Reuters.
