4 killed, more than 60 others injured in S Korean fire, stampede

People look at burning pampas grass at Hwawang mountain in Changnyeong, about 275 km (170 miles) southeast of Seoul, Feb. 9, 2009, in celebration of "Jeongwol Daeboreum", or Great Full Moon, which is a Korean traditional holiday that celebrates the first full moon of the lunar calendar. It is believed that if the grass burns fast, no problems will arise in the village during the year. At least four were killed, 2 were missing and more than 60 others injured when a mountain fire set as part of a festival in South Korea burned out of control and led to a stampede, authorities said on Tuesday.
