The alarm was raised at approximately 8:55 am this morning when smoke was seen coming from a window on the first floor of the resort, located at Soi Patak 18, Patak Rd in Karon subdistrict.

Firefighters rushed to the scene and managed to successfully contain the blaze before it spread and caused any further damage.

It appeared the blaze started in a room being used to house bed equipment although it was not stated how exactly the fire broke out.

There are no reports of any injured people. The hotel is currently closed due to the impact of the COVID-19 coronavirus which explains why no tourists were present at the resort.

“We do not yet know how the fire started. I am waiting for further investigation at the scene by the forensic police in order to get a clearer understanding,” he added.

Well golly...let's hope this isn't an "insurance-based fire"... like someone might try and do in order to get out of any financial obligations and/or responsibilities.  Nah...that would never happen here.
