More details on Columbia hydrogen burn

The Huffington Post has an article this morning on the event yesterday at the Columbia Generating Station:
 
A spokesman for a Washington nuclear power plant says a small amount of hydrogen gas ignited in a six-inch flame Thursday when workers cut into the pipe.
 
The HuffPost piece also says that the Unusual Event was in effect for ninety minutes, and it was in the turbine building, not the reactor building, as I reported.
