A fire at Fortune Town shopping mall in Bangkok’s Din Daeng district only damaged 20 square metres of the property and did not affect the building’s main structure, CP Tower Growth Leasehold Property Fund manager San Mulsart said on Monday afternoon.

The fire, which started at around 8am at a third-floor audio store, was quickly contained and brought under control within half an hour thanks to the building’s sprinkles and smoke detectors as well as well-trained firefighters, he said. 

No injuries or deaths were reported, San added.

The shop where the fire originated will be sealed pending a police investigation of the cause of fire, he said, adding that the nearby area and fourth floor would be repaired immediately.

Other shops in the mall were expected to resume normal business later on Monday afternoon, he said. 

A meeting will also be held to notify shop tenants and boost their awareness about building safety protocols and standards, San said.
