House Fire in Pattaya Injures Two Residents

Pattaya —

A fire broke out at a house in Pattaya early yesterday morning, injuring two people.

The fire started at around 4:16 AM on June 10th, 2024, at a house on Soi Phonprapanimit 16, Nongprue sub-district, Banglamung district, Chonburi province. The house was formerly used as a fortune-telling shrine but had since been converted into a second-hand goods store.

Nongprue firefighters arrived at the house and found it engulfed in flames. They used water hoses to extinguish the fire, which took about 30 minutes.

According to reports, two people were injured in the fire, including Mr. Samrit, 57, who suffered burns to both hands, and Ms. Pornprapha, 58, who suffered burns to her right leg. Both were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The house owner, Mr. Samrit, told The Pattaya News that he was asleep in the house with his wife when he woke up because his fan had stopped. He then saw the firelight seeping in from under his bedroom door and immediately woke up his wife. Luckily, Mr. Samrit and his wife were able to escape the house safely, although they were both slightly injured in the process.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation as of press time.
