Pattaya, Chonburi –
A 66-year-old woman who is bedridden has been saved from a house fire in Nongprue last night (April 4th).
A house fire took place around 9:00 P.M. near Soi Bongkot. Pattaya fire fighters with multiple fire engines arrived at the house following urgent calls to find the fire was completely ablaze.
Firefighters took about 25 minutes to put out the fire, and prevented the flames from reaching any of the nearby homes or businesses.
Inside the house rescue workers found a 66-year-old woman who is bedridden. She was rescued from the fire and taken to a local hospital while getting medical support for smoke inhalation.
At this stage police believe that the fire started from an electric short circuit in a storage room. However, the Pattaya forensic police are investigating to find the exact cause of the fire.
A video of the rescue of the woman is below:
Correction: An early share of this story last night stated the woman as 60. She is 66. Her name was withheld at family request.
