Arrest Warrant Requested for Motorcycle Owner over Uijeingbu Fire

Police have concluded that an owner of a motorcycle caused an apartment fire in Uijeongbu City, Gyeonggi Province which claimed four lives and injured more than 100 people.

The Uijeongbu Police Station on Tuesday requested an arrest warrant for a 53-year-old man surnamed Kim on charges of manslaughter and causing a fire without intent.

Kim is accused of causing the fire when he held a flame up to the ignition of his motorcycle parked near the apartment on January 10 in order to take out the key that had frozen inside the ignition.

Police believe that Kim melted the sheaths of the ignition line unwittingly, which caused a spark and quickly developed into a massive fire that injured 126 people.
