Cigarette Possible Source of Cargo Truck Fire


GOYANG, Jun. 4 (Korea Bizwire)A cargo truck caught fire on the roads of Sinpyeong-dong in Goyang on June 2, possibly due to a cigarette butt thrown by a careless driver.

The fire completely destroyed the truck’s load of kitchen utensils, resulting in a 15 million won (US$ 13,530) property loss, and was put out by firefighters in an hour.

The truck driver was unharmed, fortunately, as he quickly noticed the fire starting and pulled the truck over.
