Satellite imagery of the area shows a helipad above the building known as Samhwan Art-Nouveau.

At least part of the building consists of residential buildings that are 33 stories high and 102 meters high.

According to witnesses, the fire spread to the roof of the nearby Lotte Mall.

Shortly after the fire broke out, firefighters rushed to clear the block with 136 households of all residents.
