A fire seriously damaged a coffee truck inside a temple in Sattahip yesterday afternoon.

Captain Panya Damlek of the Sattahip Police was notified of the fire yesterday afternoon around 4:00 PM at a coffee truck at a Sattahip Temple.

Police, emergency responders and fire fighters with multiple fire engines arrived at the Sattahip Temple to find the coffee truck already heavily ablaze with a significant level of smoke.

Local residents, the coffee truck owner and temple staff were trying in vain to put out the fire. Fire fighters quickly took over the situation taking less than five minutes to extinguish the blaze. There were no injuries due to the fire.

Ms. Kaesorn Satta, 45, the coffee truck owner, told Associated Press she was selling coffee drinks when the fire started. She attempted to put the blaze out herself but it spread quickly and she called to temple staff for assistance. One of the staff members called for the fire department while others attempted to help her extinguish the blaze.

Captain Panya Damlek told Associated Press they believe a faulty gas cylinder in the truck sparked a flame and started the blaze. The exact extent of damages was being summarized and totaled by Ms. Kaesorn.
