Blaze engulfs 33-storey apartment block in Ulsan, South Korea

A large fire has spread throughout a 33-storey apartment block in the South Korean city of Ulsan. The fire began on the 12th floor before spreading across the building that houses 136 apartments. Seventy-seven people had been treated for smoke inhalation, the fire department said, and the blaze has now been extinguished. The blaze, which broke out at about 11pm on Thursday, was fanned by strong winds.

    There is no point trying to put that fire out, it’s clear from the burning flames the building was badly built.

    Why is this news? A building going on fire happens every city nearly every hour. Which is fire fighters exist. It's nothing to put news on
