    ATLANTA -- A nuclear reactor at Plant Vogtle in eastern Georgia has been taken out of service until authorities determine why it unexpectedly shut down.

    The Atlanta-based Southern Co. reported Thursday that the Unit 1 reactor at Plant Vogtle automatically shut down Wednesday evening. Officials say the shutdown procedure, called a scram, was completed without incident.

    Southern Company staff had a status call Friday to find out the root cause of why that reactor shut down on Wednesday. Officials say, as a preventive measure, they're going to replace the breaker that caused the reactor to shut down. They're also going to replace all components that could have caused the breaker to fail.

    The officials say it's a maintenance issue...not a safety issue. The shutdown happened Wednesday around 5:00 p.m.
