JAPAN - Three more reactors have experienced severe problems in Japan, including a fire today that released high levels of radiation.

Fears of radiation poisoning have deepened ever since several nuclear reactors exploded following Friday's massive earthquake in Japan.

Some 70,000 people have already been evacuated from a 12-mile radius around the Fukushima Dai-Ichi Nuclear Power Plant.

About 140,000 families remain in the new 19-mile warning zone and have been told to seal themselves indoors to avoid exposure to radiation.
