Three members of a family were killed and one seriously injured after a multiplex housing unit was engulfed by a fire in central South Korea on Thursday, police said.
The fire broke out around 6:37 a.m. on the third floor of the three-story housing unit in Cheonan, South Chungcheong Province, before being extinguished in 26 minutes.
The police said the bodies of the three dead — a 72-year-old husband, his 66-year-old wife and his 40-year-old daughter — were found on the third floor.
Their son, 36, was injured by smoke inhalation and whisked away to a nearby hospital. He is in a critical condition, according to the police.
The police are looking into the cause of the fire. (Yonhap)
