[ソウル 6日 ロイター] – A fire broke out at Posco’s steelworks in southeastern South Korea on Monday, affecting two of its factories, a spokesman said. The fire was extinguished and no casualties were reported.

We are currently investigating the damage.

A typhoon approaching the southeastern part of South Korea caused a power outage, and gaseous byproducts were released at the plant in the morning.

Authorities raised the alert level to the highest level on the 5th as the large and strong Typhoon No.

POSCO said it would suspend operations at its production facilities, including blast furnaces, until the typhoon passed.
