Simple, photos show the house was not a real house. So, the electric wirering was not as well. Of course 'relevant official agencies' abstain comments. What can they say anyway? Why a person was hospitalized for smoke inhalation is a question. Not getting out in time? Big Phuket problem is--> Many times No professional electric wirering! Why is that?
