The police investigated the explanation for the hearth in an unfinished warehouse in Lichuan City. According to reports, a fire in a Korean warehouse killed 38 construction workers and injured 10 others. The Yonhap News Agency quoted fire officials as saying that on Wednesday, at the unfinished four-story warehouse site in Icheon, 80 kilometers (50 miles) southeast of Seoul, the fire “extended rapidly”.
Local officials said the eight injured were in serious condition. Yonhap News Agency reported that firefighters said the fire started on the second underground level. Xu Cheng, director of the Icheon Fire Bureau, told Yonhap that the oil droplets may have been ignited to cause the fire, but the police and firefighters are investigating the exact cause of the accident.
Witnesses said they heard at least 10 explosions. Blue Palace spokesman Kang Minxi said the president in Zion ordered government officials to mobilize all available resources for search and rescue. The Yonhap News Agency said Moon hosted an emergency meeting and ordered medical support for the injured. The President also regretted that despite the new security measures taken by the government after the deadly fires in 2017 and 2018, there was another fire.
This means that we haven’t learned anything from the previous accident,” Kang quoted Muen as saying. In December 2017, a fire broke out in the sports center of Jecheon in the central city, killing 29 people and wounding 40 others. A month later, a hospital fire broke out in the southeastern city of Miyang, killing 45 people and wounding 147 others.
