It took about half an hour to put out the fire which caused substantial damage to property inside the establishment. According to firefighters a large amount of furniture was a complete loss.

Mr. Thaphon Dengjai, who is a branch manager for the office, told The Pattaya News, “The office was closed and luckily nobody was inside during the time of the fire. A neighbor reported the blaze and called the fire department and myself.”

At this stage, Si Racha police believe that the fire started from an electric short circuit.
