fire in Icheon kills at least 38

Yesterday, my coworker pointed me to an article about a fire that had broken out in a Coupang warehouse and shipping center in Icheon, which my coworker noted is not far from Yeosu, a city I've been through several times on my walks. The fire has killed at least 38 people, and the death toll is likely to rise. At least one firefighter was also killed. The fire may have been caused by a spark that ignited volatile material being used by workers on site; they had been installing insulation in a basement.
