An incident occurred at one of the under-construction sheds in Natanz nuclear facility in central Iran on Thursday morning causing no casualties or damage to the main site, said spokesman of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi.

He stressed that expert teams from AEOI were rushed to the scene of the incident to investigate its main cause, IRNA reported.

Kamalvandi dismissed any concerns about possible nuclear contamination in area saying the under-construction shed was placed in an open area and was not operational.

He added that the incident has not disrupted the ongoing activities at the main site.

Located in Isfahan province, south of the capital Tehran, Natanz nuclear facility is generally known as Iran's main facility for uranium enrichment.
