Up in smoke


The main building of Naejang Temple, known for its scenic autumn foliage, was destroyed by fire on Oct. 31. The fire, presumed to be electrical, started at the temple in Jeongeup, North Jeolla, at about 2 a.m. and burned the main building and part of the forest behind it, police said. First built in 636 during the reign of King Mu of the Baekje Kingdom (18 BC-660), the temple burned down in 1951 during the Korean War and was restored in 1958. [YONHAP]

가을 단풍으로 유명한 전북 정읍시 내장사에 10월31일 불이 나 대웅전이 잿더미로 변했다. 전기로 발생한 것으로 추정되는 화재는 새벽 2시쯤 발생해 대웅전과 뒷산 일부를 불태웠다고 경찰이 말했다. 백제 무왕 때인 636년 창건됐고, 한국전쟁 기간인 1951년 소실됐다가 1958년 중건됐다. [연합]
