Police were alerted to the fire at the S Florist's in Tambon Pa Putsa, which sells bouquets and funeral wreaths, at 1.49am.
Five fire engines took about half an hour to put out the blaze at the two-storey shophouse, after which the charred body of Dejthana Mueansri, 60, was found on the second floor.
Two women escaped the fire but suffered severe burns. They were identified as Sriwari Disakorn, 58, and Jittra Buabangbai, 23.
Jittra told police that she woke up to see a blaze raging in wreaths on the ground floor, and she and Sriwali managed to run out of the shop.
