The Wall Street Journal reports on a fire in the construction site at Korea’s new museum:
A fire broke out three stories underground at the construction site of the new National Museum of Contemporary Art, killing four people and covering downtown Seoul in thick black smoke Monday morning.
Another 18 construction workers were injured, including a man who fell from a crane as he was trying to climb down to the ground in the smoke and chaos. […] The $70 million, 53,000-square-meter building will replace one in suburban Gwacheon. The building – three stories above groud and three stories below – stretches across the former site of South Korea’s Defense Security Command.
