Since last Wednesday’s tragic fire, we are continuing to do everything we can to understand what caused it and how our fire protection systems performed.

We support the efforts of the prosecutor's office to conduct a thorough examination of this incident, and we are cooperating fully in the process. Additionally, we are conducting our own internal investigation, using leading fire experts and engineers.

Out of respect for the authorities’ investigative process, we will only publicly issue information about the fire when it’s appropriate to do so.

We share the country’s deep sorrow for the loss of the brave first responders, and our thoughts are with the injured firemen who are hospitalized. We wish them a full recovery.
