Yesterday (5th) around 10:10 pm in a hill in Sedong-ri, Gogeum-myeon, Wando-gun, Jeollanam-do, a fire of unknown cause broke out and the fire department is putting out the fire.
The Central Forest Fire Prevention Headquarters of the Korea Forest Service said that the fire was extinguished at 11:50 p.m. about an hour and a half after the first report was received.
A firefighter official said, “As of 12:40 p.m., we are monitoring the rear lights while cleaning up residual fires.”
It is said that 48 people who climbed the fire fighting vehicle were putting out the fire with pumps on their backs because it was nighttime, so it was difficult to use a helicopter.
The fire department plans to ascertain the circumstances of the fire and the exact extent of damage as the day dawns.
