was a big fire at an auto parts factory in Incheon.
The black smoke was so severe that you could see it from the plane, but fortunately no one was injured.
This is Sohn Hyung-an.
Red flames engulf the entire building, and smoke soars constantly.
[Witness: (I have to put it on
until it's all burned
?) Right.] The
fire was so big that the scene of black smoke rising to a height of tens of meters was clearly visible from the plane in flight.
[Witness: When you take off from Gimpo, you can see Incheon right away. At first I thought it was just a factory, but no. Too much smoke is coming up. That's why I took a video.] The
place where the fire was lit is an automobile parts manufacturing plant in Gajwa-dong, Seo-gu, Incheon.
Around 9:15 am, a report was received by 119 that the fire started on the second floor of the factory was spreading out of control.
The fire department immediately issued a first phase of response, mobilizing all of the fire department personnel in charge.
More than 80 firefighters, fire helicopters, and over thirty pump vehicles were dispatched.
A big flame was caught in an hour and a half after the fire was extinguished, and four hours after the report was received, all the remaining lights were extinguished.
There was no human injury. Not many people went to work because of the weekend, and 14 workers in the factory were found to have evacuated themselves.
Police and fire departments are investigating the fact that there was a fire while working on the second floor of the factory.
