The Namyang District Office said that after the initial suppression, smoke continued from the vehicle, and firefighters dispatched to the site were closely watching the situation for more than an hour.
This is to prevent the possibility of secondary accidents.
This fire accident was particularly noticeable when it was connected to a vehicle and a fast charger.
A total of two electric vehicle fast chargers are in operation in the parking lot of the Wabu-eup Community Center.
