The aftermath of the blaze.

Ms. Temsinee Tonsi, 31, the owner of the house, was outside in tears and being consoled by rescue workers as her six year old son, who had been watching television in the home, was not found after the fire.

Miracously, the boy was later found by firefighters hiding outside the house in the woods nearby with no injuries. He had fled the home shortly after the fire began.

More aftermath of the blaze.

Ms. Tensinee told The Pattaya News that her son was watching television inside the house while she was outside the house working in a nearby garden.

She saw smoke coming out from her house and rushed to the scene, but the building had already caught completely ablaze. She called firefighters while frantically searching for her son, who unknown to her had already fled into the woods nearby.

At this stage, Banglamung police believed that the fire started from an electric malfunction. They praised the boy for his quick reflexes in fleeing the home.

The family reunited after yesterday’s blaze.
