The explosion occurred around 11:40 am,

Only a 37-year-old man was riding in the vehicle, but he was burned and taken to the hospital.

Fortunately, it is known that life is not affected.

At the time of the accident, it was confirmed that there were 10 portable butane gases used for interior decoration work in the vehicle.

Police are paying attention to the statement that the explosion occurred as soon as the driver lit a cigarette.

[경찰 관계자 : 인테리어업을 하는데, 거기에 토치를 사용하나 봐요. 그래서 차에 실어져 있던 것으로…. (운전자가) 담배를 피우려고 라이터를 켠 순간 ‘펑’했다고 말했어요. 그 안에 원인자가 될 수 있는 게 부탄가스밖에 없어서….]

The police plan to send the vehicle to the National Institute for Scientific Investigation to reveal the exact cause of the explosion.
