No people were reported as injured by the fire.

The house owner, Supanee Soonthorntip, told police that she heard a loud bang from her bedroom. She ran to the room and saw a lot of smoke. Ms Supanee quickly escorted her mother out of the house and called her brother to call the police.

Lt Pattarakorn noted that police at this stage believe that the cause of the fire was an electrical short circuit. However, police were still investigating the cause of the fire, he added.
