At the fire site of the Coupang Logistics Center in Icheon, Gyeonggi-do, firefighting work continues for the fourth day today.
Yesterday at around 12:20 pm, a big fire was caught, and the response stage was lowered to stage 1, which mobilizes all personnel and equipment of the fire department in charge, but the work to clean up residual fires in various parts of the distribution center is continuing.
As a result of the first safety diagnosis, the fire department concluded that it was okay for firefighters to enter the building, so they started firefighting from the second basement level, the point of ignition yesterday, and plan to expand the firefighting area to all floors.
However, because there are so many flammable items inside the building, fire officials predicted that it would take more than a day to completely extinguish the fire on the second basement floor.
In addition, he said that he plans to conduct a detailed safety inspection tomorrow to accurately understand the condition of the building.
When the firefighting work is complete, the police, firefighting, and related ministries will conduct a joint investigation to investigate the exact cause of the fire.
