Morning fire at the Chiang Mai post office
The local precinct superintendent, Pol Colonel Chuwit Kongkaew, says a fire, suspected to have been caused by a short circuit, broke out this morning (Sunday) in the local post office. The incident happened at the one-storey post office building of the San Khamphaeng branch.
The fire, which occurred at around 7am, took fire-fighters 30 minutes to get under control at the two year old building. The building is used for separating letters and packages. No injuries were reported as it was the weekly day off for all staff. It was reported that all letters and post packages had already been dispatched before the fire.
Chuwit says Thailand Post would inspect the damage to determine the cost later while police would further investigate the cause of the fire.
