There’s been another speed boat incident in Phuket, south Thailand. This time 2 speed boats have been badly damaged after one of them caught fire while tied up at a pier in Thalang yesterday afternoon. The fire spread to a second boat tied up next to it. No injuries were reported.

Phuket’s marine police chief, Pol Col Prasert Srikhunrat, reported that the Lee Loo 2 caught fire about 4.30pm at the Yamu boat pier in Pak Khlok.

The owner of Lee Loo 2 told marine police that he moored his boat at the pier after to allow tourists to alight after a day trip. He says that the fire started while the speed boat was being refuelled. The boat was powered by two outboard petrol engines.

Then the flames from Lee Loo 2 spread to the Phrae Ploy 3, which was tied up next to it.

The damage to the two uninsured GRP (fibreglass) boats has been estimated at 1 million baht.

Marine officials are investigating the incident.
