Fire destroys teak house in Lamphun

A fire has destroyed a teak house in the Wiang Nong Long district of Lamphun this morning, June 21st.

Fire engines from surrounding areas were called to the scene just after 10 a.m. not only to put the house fire out but as there was concern that the fire may spread to nearby buildings in the area.

While authorities are investigating the cause of the fire, the home owner, Mr. Thawatchai Kong Sing, 58, says that as the fire started at the top of the two story building that he presumes it may have started due to a short circuit in an appliance or wiring.
