At around 2:00 p.m. on the 19th, Chosungjongsa Street in Jeungpyeong-eup, Jeungpyeong-gun, Chungcheongbuk-do. Police officers from the Chungbuk National Police Agency’s 1st Riot Squad, who were on traffic duty, noticed smoke coming from the driver’s side wheel of a 4.5-ton cargo truck that had been stopped on the side of the road.
The officers grabbed fire extinguishers from a nearby store and attempted to extinguish the fire while calling for backup from a nearby riot police bus. The SWAT bus arrived a short time later and used all of the extinguishers on the bus to put out the fire, but it wasn’t enough메이저놀이터.
At that point, some of the SWAT team members spotted a sashimi truck passing by the scene. When the officers pulled over and explained the situation, the driver readily agreed to help. With the help of the live fish truck driver, they were able to douse the flames and smoke with water from a tank. Thanks to this, the fire did not spread much and ended with property damage of 200,000 won (estimated by the fire department), including the tires of a lorry. No one was injured.
An official from the Chungbuk National Police Agency said, “It is believed that the fire was caused by overheating of the brakes.” “It took about nine minutes to extinguish the fire completely, but thanks to the quick response and the cooperation of citizens, including the driver of the live-aboard vehicle, we were able to extinguish the fire without causing much damage.”
