A huge fire ravaged a 400-rai rubber plantation in Chacheongsao province and also raised worries of adding to Bangkok’s air-pollution woes.

The fire in Sanam Chai Khet district began at around 10pm on Saturday night and as of 11.30am on Sunday had still not been fully put out. 

Deputy provincial governor Prasong Khongkhaoroptham called an urgent meeting of district chief Waraporn Siriwong and related provincial officials at the Tambon Tha Kradan Administrative Organisation Office to find out measures to contain the situation, as they feared the huge blaze may complicate the air-pollution situation in Greater Bangkok.
