Bang Phli residents told to evacuate after blaze in foam factory


The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation has told residents of Bang Phli district in Samut Prakan province to evacuate immediately after a foam factory in the district caught fire early on Monday.

The officials said that the evacuation orders were given despite the fire being brought under control, as they were worried the blaze could spread to the factory’s chemical tank. So, it was logical to evacuate people from the area in case a big accident happens, the officials said.

The evacuation orders were for people living within a five kilometre radius of the foam factory.
