Disaster has been narrowly avoided after a fire started in an electric skillet at a condo in Pattaya, filling the building with smoke and terrifying adjacent residents. Pattaya City police were notified of the fire at 9pm Tuesday, at a condominium primarily for local Thais.

Firefighters and police rushed to the scene to find smoke gushing from a third floor room. They broke down the door to get inside. Many residents had already fled.

The fire started in an electric pan, according to The Pattaya News. Firefighters responded quickly and it took only a few minutes to control the fire.

The room’s owner, 28 year old Sitthiphong Patthawee, told reporters that he left the chicken in the pan and went to the first floor to get something and ended up distracted, forgetting the chicken was still sizzling away in his apartment.

Police say Patthawee won’t be charged as the incident was, in their opinion, a legitimate accident.

This is the second fire in a public building Pattaya firemen have had to respond to in the past two days. Only a day before, a mother and her two year old son narrowly escaped a blaze that destroyed the entire top floor of their building.

Sadly, the chicken meal was ruined.

Massage shops and spas as well as other similar venues in Chon Buri will be allowed to reopen after being closed for nearly a month due to strict Covid-19 control measures. Massage and spa workers gathered earlier this week, calling on the government to allow their businesses to reopen.

Along with massage shops and spas, tattoo studios and beauty clinics are also allowed to reopen, but must abide by Covid-19 prevention measures like checking customers’ temperatures, supplying hand sanitiser and enforcing social distancing.

Pattaya News notes that gyms, pools, fitness centres, saunas and massage shops offering “soapies” are not included in the order.

Although Chon Buri has gone 6 consecutive days without a local Covid-19 case, it is still classified as a “red zone.” The Centre for Covid-19 Situation will hold a meeting on Friday and will discuss whether to reclassify the province as an “orange zone,” allowing tourists to visit without permission from a district official.

After several consecutive days without a local Covid-19 case, Chon Buri might soon be removed from the government’s list of “red zones” for high risk of Covid-19. Once lockdown restrictions are eased, the coastal province expects to have an influx of tourists to Pattaya.

The province has been under strict disease control measures and is classified as one of the 5 coastal province with the highest risk under maximum control to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Many have been calling on the government to loosen restrictions and allow nonessential businesses to reopen. Massage and spa workers gathered yesterday, calling on the governor to allow their businesses to reopen. President of the Thai Hotels Association Eastern Chapter, Phisut Saekhu, is also calling for restrictions to be lifted, saying many hotels have shut down due to the pandemic and other businesses face serious liquidity problems.

Chon Buri has gone 6 consecutive days without a local Covid-19 transmission. The provincial governor Pakarathorn Thianchai says he’s informed the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration and expects the province will be able to ease restrictions soon.

Other high risk “red zone” provinces, including Rayong, Chanthaburi and Trat, may also be removed from the list. Deputy Public Health Minister Satit Pitutacha says the CCSA will meet on Thursday and will look into changing the classification for those provinces from red to orange.

A group of about 50 workers from Pattaya massage shops and spas gathered together to call for the reopening of their businesses after being closed for the past month due to Covid-19 restrictions. The group called themselves the “Pattaya Health Massage” presented a letter signed by 60 massage shops, spas and gyms to Bang Lamung District Sheriff this morning.

Chon Buri is listed as a “high risk” area with maximum restrictions. Many nonessential businesses in the province have been closed including massage shops, spas and gyms.

Now that Chon Buri has gone 5 consecutive days without a local Covid-19 infection, the workers say it’s time for businesses, like massage shops and spas, to reopen.

The workers also raised the point that other provinces and districts across Thailand are loosening restrictions as the number of active cases continues to drop. The workers also said that there are no Covid-19 clusters or major outbreaks related to massage shops or fitness venues.

Bang Lamung District Sheriff Amnat Charoensri met the protesters and collected the petition and says he understands that many people need to get back to work to earn income. Local officials are expected to hold a meeting within the next week to potentially loosen restrictions.
