South finishes Kaesong fire station

A new fire station will go into operation in the joint inter-Korean industrial complex in the North Korean border city of Kaesong, Seoul’s Unification Ministry said yesterday.

“The Kaesong complex fire station has been completed last month and will be put into motion around next month,” said an official of the ministry handling inter-Korean issues.
The current fire house, installed within the building used by South Korea’s agency for managing the industrial zone, will move to the newly built three-story building, the official said.

With the completion of the new fire station built with an investment of 5 billion won ($4.6 million) from the South Korean government’s budget, Seoul plans to further increase fire-fighting capacities down the road. Currently, a total of 36 South and North Korean fire fighters are standing by there.

Seoul is studying whether to hold a joint South-North opening ceremony for the new facilities amid restrained inter-Korean relations. Yonhap
