A couple were killed when a fire engulfed a small black tofu factory in Ratchaburi's Photharam district early Monday.

Police said Somchai Jittaleela, 66, his wife, Piyawan Jittaleela, 65, were trapped on the second floor when the fire started on the floor at 2:30 am.

The couple were staying at the factory and their charred bodies were found after the fire was put out.

Six fire engines spent over two hours to control the blaze.

The couples were parents of teenage actress Suppanart Jittaleela in “Yes or No – Love Me If You Want To” movie.

Somjai Jittaleela, 74, sister of Somchai, said she heard and explosion sound and saw the fire starting on the second floor and she alerted her brother and sister-in-law, telling them to get out.

She said the fire spread very fast with thick smoke so she did not know that the couple were trapped inside.
