A new list of high-rise building façade fires is launched by Wikipedia, with nearly 60 incidents over the last 30 years. The most recent listed fire is the Samhwan Art Nouveau building façade fire, Ulsan, South Korea, 8th October 2020, in which nearly a hundred people were injured. The fire apparently started on a balcony and spread rapidly to nearly all of the 33-floors, leaving nearly 200 people homeless.
