A massive fire broke out on Friday in a 38-floor apartment and office building in South Korea’s southern port city of Busan. No deaths were reported. The fire official could not say how many people remained in the building, only that residents were still being rescued, some by helicopter from the building’s roof. Busan, South Korea’s second-largest city and a major seaport, is located about 400 km (250 miles) southeast of Seoul. The fire started early Friday morning in a janitor’s closet on the fourth floor of the high-rise building located in the city’s plush beachside Haeundae district.
