Fire at South Korean bus terminal leaves five dead, three injured
A fire broke out near a bus terminal in Goyang, South Korea, leaving five dead and three injured, South Korean media reported.
The South Korean fire department said that the fire started in the underground shopping center near the Goyang express bus terminal from 9.05 am.
It was put out at around 9.29am.
Firefighting authorities also told local media that the fire is suspected to have occurred when workers were doing welding work at the construction site.
This latest incident comes hot on the heels of several accidents that have plagued South Korea recently.
Koreans are still recovering from the sinking of the Sewol ferry that has claimed 288 lives so far.
Last week, 11 people were injured when an electrical insulator exploded on a South Korean subway train in Seoul.
Earlier this month, two subway trains collided in Seoul lightly injuring 200 people.
