Pattaya —

A fire suddenly erupted on a running pickup truck on North Pattaya Road. The Thai driver survived the blaze without injuries, not knowing how the fire started.

The rescuers and fire department rushed to his aide at the scene of the incident near the entrance of the North Pattaya Tesco Lotus in Banglamung district, Chonburi, after being notified of the incident on Thursday, July 27th.

The firefighters spent only 10 minutes to snuff out the blaze. The car, a bronze Nissan pickup truck, suffered significant damage.

The Pattaya News interviewed Mr. Sawang about the cause of the incident and he said that while he was driving to work, he noticed white smoke suddenly gushing out from under his car’s hood.
