A metal reaction vessel cracked at a federal uranium-processing plant and a small cloud of radioactive gas leaked inside a building, but no workers were injured, authorities said in Cincinnati. The undetermined amount of uranium hexafluoride gas did not escape the building at the Feed Materials Production Center in Fernald, north of Cincinnati, in the incident late Sunday, said plant spokesman Pete Kelley. It was the third leak of uranium hexafluoride reported this year.
