 HANFORD, WA - Last week workers at Hanford cut the welds on the door at the F Reactor and went inside for the first time in six years.

Every so often a team goes into the cocooned nuclear reactors along the Columbia River to check radiation levels, make sure the roofs aren't leaking and animals haven't made their way inside.

 The team said they found F Reactor to be in good shape, and almost identical to the last time it was inspected.

Workers will inspect four other cocooned reactors next spring.
