Firefighters were called to the scene at 5:30pm, reported Lt Col Nopparut Sukkri of the Kathu Police.

“There were no injuries from the fire,” Lt Col Nopparut confirmed.

A team of firefighters arrived and took one hour to douse the blaze, befire it spread to another building located metres away.


“The fire was safely out by 6:45pm,” Lt Col Nopparut said.

“The cause of the fire and cost of the damage have yet to be investigated,” he added.

The warehouse, measuring five metres by 10m, was a wooden-frame structure clad with corrugated tin sheets. The structure was used to house a variety of construction equipment, Lt Col Nopparut explained.

Torrential rain from 5pm onwards meant we had the irony of fire engines stuck in the traffic jam caused by flooding. Yup, it's not just ambulances these people ignore.

5 x 10 m, sounds more like a garage or a shed. ( tin sheets). probably with self done electrical needs.  Bingo!. Spark-spark.  :-)  Lucky neighbours.
