There is usually someone watching the warehouse for Sameu, but it was a Sunday on the 7th and no one was working at the warehouse. A neighbor ran to tell Dararat that it seemed like the warehouse might be burning inside.


When Dararat ran to the warehouse, it was too late and everything was already burned down to ashes. Police Captain Isarapong reported that the neighbors heard a loud bang just when it started raining, not long after there was smoke coming out from inside the warehouse. The neighbors tried to help control the flames but it didn’t work so they decided to call the authorities.


The current damage estimated is 400,000 THB, the police will be investigating to confirm the cause of the fire.
