South Korean authorities are investigating what caused a fire that killed 38 construction workers in one of the country’s deadliest fires in years.
The explosion that swept through a warehouse being built in Icheon, just south of Seoul, also injured 10 others on Wednesday.
At the time of the fire, 78 workers had been inside the warehouse and all had been accounted for, fire official Park Su-jong said.
Park said 29 had been identified and DNA tests were being conducted for the rest. Of those identified so far, all were male and include two Pakistanis and one Chinese. The others were South Korean.
