March 14 (Reuters) - Japan's Tokyo Electric Power Co (TEPCO) said on Monday the electric utility has reported a rise in radiation levels at its Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant to the government.

The cooling system of the plant, located 240 km (150 miles) north of Tokyo, was damaged by Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami, forcing the operator to release radioactive air to reduce pressure inside reactor container vessels.

The exact radiation level on the site was not immediately available, a TEPCO spokeswoman said. (Reporting by Kiyoshi Takenaka; Editing by Edwina Gibbs)
