According to the Gyeonggi Gunpo Fire Department, there was an unknown fire at the Anyang plant in Biscotti, Gangnam, at 21:06. The fire department received automatic notification through a factory-installed fire alarm.
Around 9:13 p.m., fire trucks and personnel arrived and began to respond. Around 9:37 p.m., about 30 minutes after the fire, the government issued the "response phase 3", which is the highest level of response to fire. The third step is the stage where personnel from fire departments and local government fire safety headquarters equipment are dispatched. At 11:30 p.m., he was relegated to the second stage.
Currently, the fire department began to evolve with 357 firefighters and 124 equipment. Around 10:30 in the evening, which is only an hour and a half after the fire, a large flame is struck.
However, witnesses around the factory argue that they have suffered direct or indirect damage, such as black smoke and the smell of burning. According to eye-witnesses, explosions were heard 3 to 4 km away, including a popping sound. Residents living about 1 km away from the fire plant said: "There is a smell of toxic gas and burning with black smoke," he said. Another resident said, "The smell of chemical raw materials is so bad," he said, "and there are several fire trucks and ambulances in front of the factory."
At 10:25 a.m., armed men sent a letter to nearby residents asking them to close the window because of the smoke. One resident said: "A fire occurred at 9:05 am, but the evacuation letter arrived only after an hour," he said. "It's a shame that the correspondence is very slow."
