Fire destroys wooden house in Phuket


A fire totally destroyed a wooden house and storage area in the Wichit area of Phuket on Monday, with damage estimated at around Bt300,000.

Wichit police were notified of the fire in Soi Thep Anusorn at 2pm yesterday.
Police and rescue workers, along with firefighters with two fire engines, arrived at the wooden house, which was already well ablaze.
In front of the house was a storage room where wooden materials were kept. This had also caught fire.
It took about half an hour to control the blaze, but no injuries were reported.

Forty-nine-year-old Surin Tapyang, the owner of the property, told police that the house was 15 years old. 
His four Thai workers lived in the house.
“When the fire started there was no one in the house as they had gone out to work at a construction site,” he said.
Police are investigating the cause of the fire. 
At this stage, they believe it could have been triggered by an electrical short-circuit.
