Setsuko Ogawa (21 at the time) was participating in morning physical exercise at the Fifth Army headquarters, located 800 meters from the hypocenter. Although she sought refuge at a nearby park, raging fire forced her to flee in a small river. She was then rescued by soldiers and accommodated at an army headquarters. On August 9, she was transferred to another location, but died on August 11.
