Fire in Phuket Town

PHUKET TOWN: A fire on Saturday night caused damage estimated at 500,000 baht to a house on Sakdidet Rd. Four fire engines arrived within 20 minutes of being alerted by a neighbor. About 80% of the house was destroyed by the blaze. No one was hurt. The cause of the fire has not yet been identified, though an electrical short circuit is thought to be the most likely culprit. Ironically, Somjit Amornsing, 51, who lives in the house with her husband, is said by locals to be a medium for Chao Mae Lak Muang, a goddess who protects the town.
