TOKYO, January 10. /TASS/. At least three people died and almost one hundred were injured as a big fire broke out on Saturday morning at an apartment building in the South Korean city of Uijeongbu, north of Seoul, local media reported.
According to Yonhap news agency, eight of the 97 injured were in critical condition. Rescue crews were now evacuating people through the roof, the agency said.
The fire is reported to have erupted from a car parked on the ground floor of the building, blocking off the front entrance and preventing residents from evacuating. The police are searching for the cause of the fire, while fire crews are battling to bring the blaze under control and rescue the remaining residents.
