Four people were treated for smoke inhalation after a fire swept through adjoining wooden houses in the North Baankrua Historical community in Bangkok’s Ratchathewi district before dawn on Friday (January 10).

Fire-fighters, Phaya Thai police and the Poh Teck Tung Foundation responded to calls and found the fire threatening a sizeable portion of the sprawling community.

It took only about 30 minutes to bring under control, however. Twelve houses sustained damage.

A police spokesperson said a forensics team would examine the house where the fire began to determine the cause.
