  • Description

    A fire which raged for an hour in the upper floors of the Shin Shin department store in Seoul on Sunday (July 12), was eventually controlled without incurring any casualties.

    The Shin Shin store is located in the heart of the South Korean city. Firemen fought desperately to contain the fire from spreading to nearby buildings.

    It took the fire fighters a little over one hour to extinguish the blaze, but they were unable to save the top floor of the five-storey building.

    The cause of the blaze was not immediately known, but it is thought to have been started by a carelessly discarded cigarette.

    Staff returned to the store shortly after the blaze had been extinguished and continued serving customers in the departments which had not been affected.
