According to the website of the star spangled banner on June 22, the fire broke out in a building south of the airport of jiachana base for more than five hours. The U.S. military and local government evacuated people from the surrounding areas. Later in the day, the base announced that about 45 people had been affected by smoke and gas, most of whom had mild symptoms and received treatment, and have now returned to work.

Later, the 18th U.S. Air Force flight team stationed at Kadena base issued a statement saying that the fire caused the dispersion of chlorine and prompted people who felt uncomfortable with their respiratory system or eyes to seek immediate medical treatment.

At present, those who are still staying at the base are told to stay indoors and close the windows and air conditioning.

According to the report, most of the poisoned people have returned to work after simple medical treatment. So far, the cause of the fire has not been found out, and environmental protection and emergency response personnel are still on the scene to check the hidden dangers to ensure that there is no longer a security threat.
