Fire erupts at Yeosu Expo venue; no casualties reported

That is the headline from a Yonhap News Agency article.

An exhibition center at the site of the upcoming Yeosu Expo caught fire Wednesday, but no casualties were reported, police said.

The fire destroyed 500 square meters of a vegetation mat covering the roof of the three-story building under construction for completion at the end of this month, the police said.

The article also stated that it was probably caused by welding work, and Expo officials said there should be no disruptions in the Expo preparations.

If you read the article, you’ll see this image.

As you can see from the photo below, which I posted on Dec. 4, 2011, the area that caught fire is part of the International Pavilion, though I didn’t identify it as such. Following the photo is a map of the site, and you can make out the “troughs” in the pavilion roof. (#10 on the map)

Let’s hope there are no other mishaps.
