Today (5th) around 6:30 pm, a fire broke out in the Daeungjeon of Naejangsa, a temple in Naejangsan, Jeongeup, Jeollabuk-do.

The fire department, who was reported and dispatched, is working on fire fighting to this day.

The fire response stage 1 was issued because there was a concern that the fire could spread to other temples and mountains, but now the fire has been caught, and the response stage has been lowered.

It has been said that there has been no human injury to date.

Police arrested a 53-year-old monk, A, on charges of arson.

This man is known to have directly reported that he set himself on fire.

There are a total of 16 dongs in Naejangsa.

Daeungjeon Hall, which was on fire, is designated as Jeollabuk-do Monument No. 63.

Naejangsa Temple was built in 636 during the Baekje period, but was destroyed during the Korean War and rebuilt in 1958.

In particular, the Daeungjeon Hall, which was on fire, was completely burned due to an electric short circuit in November 2012 and was restored in 2015.
