A fire has destroyed eight tourist fishing boats in Satun province earlier today.

Police report that the fire broke out at the Pak Bara pier and spread quickly from a fishing boat to seven other adjacent boats. The boats were used to take tourists out to fish in the sea. The pier is the take-off point for boats heading from the Satun mainland out to the nearby islands.

La-ngu district chief Thani Hayimasa rushed to the scene to direct the firefighting operation but the eight boats were completely gutted before he arrived.

The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Police are still investigating the death of a 33 year old Australian man in Chiang Mai during the week. The man’s body was sent for autopsy whilst police speculate a drug overdose may have been the cause.

The body of the man, identified as Daniel Thomas Janse was found at 4pm on April 17 at a hotel in the Chang Phueak area, according to the Chiang Mai News.

Police say there was no sign of a struggle in the room and suspect the man may have died of a drug overdose. The man’s body was sent to Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital for autopsy.

Thai language social media in Chiang Mai have responded to the news of a dead foreigner being found in a hotel room by mostly asking the name of the hotel to avoid the deceased’s ghost.
