Fire at apartment blocks kills 4, leaves 124 injured-INSIDE Korea JoongAng Daily

A police officer helps a resident retrieve her belongings Sunday in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi. By Kim Sang-seon

We should all think about fire or other dramatic events that could seriously treat our lives… and we should not get scared about it, because today we have the proper knowledge and technology to help “helpers” and to rapidly and safely evacuate a building…

Every day we spend money in probably “not of primary needs” goods and services, but when it comes time to prevent a possible problem, therefore prepare ourselves and probably spend some money for proper training, equipments, and tools, we just say the most common and famous sentences… “it will never happen to me… my house is safe… fire?  there are firefighter for it … etc.”

here few sentences from the linked article (on the bottom of this page) that could stimulate your attention 😉

The female victims were 26-year-old Han Kyeong-jin, 29-year-old Yoon Hyo-jeong and 68-year-old Ahn Hyeon-sun. Lee Gwang-hyeok, 44, was the only male victim. 

VICTIMS ARE ALWAYS FROM ANY AGE AND SEX… when you are trapped, you are just trapped!


Four helicopters and 160 firefighters were sent to the scene, with the first fire truck arriving at 9:33 a.m. But authorities said they had a tough time getting to the location because the road leading to the buildings was too narrow for the fire truck to drive through. 

Thick smoke rises from the scene of a fire in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi, 27 kilometers north of Seoul (17 miles) on Saturday morning, leaving four dead and 124 injured as of press time Sunday. [NEWSIS]

We never know how long Firefighters or other Rescue Unit will take to arrive… and in such situations, time run faster than ever!


During that time, the flames obstructed the main doorways on the first floors and smoke billowed up inside the buildings. Most of the trapped victims evacuated to the rooftops and waited for helicopters to rescue them. 

Others who lived on the lower floors jumped out of their windows or climbed down the outer walls before firefighters arrived at the scene. 

Opportunity to run out the window could be for everybody… you only need to know How and with What!  (EBE)
