One woman is dead and three others severely injured after a fire broke out in an illegal brothel in eastern Seoul, authorities said Saturday.

The accident occurred at about 11 a.m. in a run-down two-story residential unit located in Cheonho, in the eastern Gangdong district, police and firefighters said.

The blaze, believed to have started from the first floor, gutted down the interior as it was put out completely in about 16 minutes, they said.

Firefighters rescued six women from the second floor. One of them died shortly after and five others were sent to hospital. Three of them sustained serious injuries and are undergoing treatment. One suffered minor injuries.

Witnesses told police that they heard a bang before they saw the blaze.

A restaurant owner said he ran down with a fire extinguisher in his hand as soon as he heard somebody say “Fire!”

“But the windows were broken and the blaze had gotten too big for me to put it out on my own,” the man said.

Police are investigating to figure out the exact cause of the fire. (Yonhap)
