Pickup truck carrying orange juice catches fire in Mae Sariang

A pickup truck transporting orange juice has been damaged after it caught fire this morning, Nov. 29 in Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son.

Mimicking an accident yesterday, the pickup caught fire on Mae Sariang – Chiang Mai Road (Highway 108) although this time it was near the Mae Ho police checkpoint.

The driver of the vehicle, Mr. Piyapong Jajai from Doi Lo, Chiang Mai said he was transporting the orange juice from Phichit Province to customers in Mae Sariang when a fire started in the engine compartment.

A fire engine was quick to the scene and managed to put the fire out before it destroyed the entire vehicle but given the pictures it is likely a write-off.
