No persons were injured in the blaze.

Lt Col Sompong Junruengrong of the Cherng Talay Police was notified of the fire at 8pm.

Cherng Talay Police Chief Col Serm Kwannimit and Lt Col Sompong along with Chief of the Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) also soon arrived at the scene.

Five fire engines arrived to find two wooden houses ablaze. Local residents were helping to put out the fire and moving belongings to safety.

Firefighters took 30 minutes to put out the fire, but by then then houses were destroyed.

New Paths Retreat

Adisorn Rakchartthai, 39, a teacher who lives in the house where the fire started, told police, “I was living in the house with teacher Eelmme Luebaetae, 25. We went to another friend’s house, which is near the school.While we were there, local residents nearby ran to tell me that the house was on fire.”

The fire spread to an adjoining house, where teacher Patcharee Lekpet stayed.

Both two houses were destroyed.

“The cost of the damage is hundreds of thousands of baht,” Mr Adisorn said.

Police are now investigating the cause of fire.
