Source: Firefighter Close Calls:

Two Firefighters died early this morning while operating at a factory fire in Taichung, central Taiwan.

The two Firefighters, Hsieh Chih-hsiung (謝志雄), 33, and Chang Che-chia (張哲嘉), 32, became separated from their fire crew at 0322 hours after entering the factory to search. Three crews were then sent into the factory to search for the two Firefighters, who were later found crushed under debris.

The men were part of 87 firefighters operating at that factory in Daya District, where the fire was reported at around 0145 hours. A total of 13 Chinese firefighters were killed in factory fires between 2015 and 2018.
