Wildfire spread from a burning furniture factory in Namyangju City, South Korea, scorching almost 13,000 square meters of mountainous forest Friday.
Authorities asked residents to evacuate to a safe location during the eight-hour fire, MBC News reports.
Two helicopters equipped for wildland firefighters were used to battle the blaze spread by high winds clocked at six meters per second. Meanwhile, the two-story factory building where the fire originated was destroyed.
The factory loss alone was estimated at nearly $130,000.
South Korean firefighters battled major wildfires in Gyeonggi and Gyeongbuk provinces the last two days.
