Menlo Park: SLAC reopened after fire

All facilities at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in Menlo Park were up and running again 48 hours after a fire broke out in the linear accelerator on June 25, according to communications manager Andrew Gordon.

On that evening, smoke poured out from an apparent electrical fire within the housing for the two-mile-long linear accelerator at 2575 Sand Hill Road. The fire damaged supporting equipment, but not the accelerator itself, according to emergency personnel, and was quickly controlled.
