This type of reactor cools with a dangerous liquid sodium system. When mixed with oxygen and moisture (even air moisture) it can burst into an extremely intense heat fire. In 1995 such a fire happened, there was a subsequent cover up and scandal. Information on the cover up along with video of the disaster can be found on Wikileaks. Adding to the high risk factors of this reactor type, it also is run on MOX fuel. MOX is a mixture of uranium and plutonium. This type of fuel added to the intensity and complexity of the disaster at Fukushima Daiichi.
