At least one person was killed and three others injured after a fire broke out at a battery plant in South Korea on Monday. 
 
The National Fire Agency said in a statement that one male employee in his 60s died and another person is currently in critical condition, while two others who inhaled smoke have returned home after receiving treatment.
 
 
The fire reportedly broke out at around 10:31 a.m. at a lithium battery factory owned by South Korean battery maker Aricell in Hwaseong, just south of the capital Seoul, when a series of battery cells exploded at a storage unit housing some 35,000 of such products.
 
Out of the 67 workers who showed up for work, 21 remain unaccounted for, and are potentially trapped inside, according to the official.
 

Around 20 bodies have been found at a South Korean lithium battery factory after a massive blaze on June 24.
