A blaze on Sunday swept through containers used as dormitories at a factory in Gyeonggi Province, killing two Vietnamese workers residing in one of them.
The fire, which occurred at a metal processing factory in Hwaseong at 12:08 a.m., destroyed four container-dorms before being put out an hour later.
The other nine workers who stayed in the dorms were evacuated from the scene unharmed.
“When firefighters arrived at the site, the containers had already been engulfed in flames. The blaze spread quickly as containers are very flammable,” a fire fighter said.
The police and fire authorities are investigating the exact cause of the fire.
