Miyako fire destroys home, injures one

Date Posted: 2012-05-25

A Sunday evening residential fire in Miyakojima City destroyed an one-story structure, injuring a 57-year-old man living in the house.

Miyakojima Police say a call to the city’s emergency number reported “smoke is rising” from a private home in Irabu, Miyakojima City, about 10:30 p.m. Firefighters responded immediately, requiring about an hour to extinguish the blaze that destroyed the ferroconcrete building.

The unemployed resident suffered burns on his back and right arm, but officials say the injuries are not life threatening. Miyakojima Police and the city’s fire department are investigating the cause of the blaze, canvassing the neighborhood as they conduct on-scene investigations.
