A pool containing spent fuel at the quake-hit Fukushima Daiichi No 4 reactor may be boiling and the water level may be falling, Kyodo news agency quoted an official at the reactor's operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co, as saying on Tuesday.

News of the problem at the shuttered reactor came after the UN Nuclear watchdog said earlier on Tuesday that Japan told it a fire had been extinguished at the storage pool.
