The Nation - - AROUND THAILAND -

A fire broke out at a fac­tory man­u­fac­tur­ing resin fi­bre in Pathum Thani’s Kh­long Luang district early yes­ter­day morn­ing.

Fol­low­ing the re­port of the fire at 1.30am, po­lice, res­cue work­ers and fire­fight­ers ac­com­pa­nied by 10 fire en­gines went to FRP Thai Sup­ply Co Ltd’s fac­tory in Soi Kh­long Luang 21 in Tam­bon Kh­long Ne­ung.

They found a room in the fac­tory, which was des­ig­nated for paint­ing, in flames and used wa­ter to con­tain the blaze, putting out the fire within an hour.

Se­cu­rity guard Sawat Pilun, 69, told po­lice he had heard an ex­plo­sion from the room and de­tected the fire be­fore alert­ing po­lice.

Kh­long Luang in­spec­tor Pol Lt-Colonel Yos­sawat Ni­ti­rat said the fire only dam­aged the sin­gle room and foren­sic of­fi­cers would in­spect the scene in de­tail to de­ter­mine the cause later yes­ter­day.
