Fire threatens forest, leisure facilities in Cherng Talay

PHUKET: Fire fighters were called out this morning to tackle a blaze which broke out in Cherng Talay and threatened to spread to nearby forest and damage a golf course in the area.

Witnesses say the fire started at about 11:00am.

Cherng Talay fire chief Teerapol Sakpracha told the Phuket Gazette that fire fighters managed to bring the blaze under control but their efforts were hampered by a wall restricting access to the area.

The fire chief declined to name the golf course affected by the fire.
