Fires rage again in Phuket

KOH KAEW, PHUKET: A forest fire threatened to scorch nearby communities in Phuket yesterday as it blazed through uninhabited forest.

The fire began around 2:00pm in a stretch of forest about 300 meters from Tha Reua shrine, next to Jee Teng Villa in Koh Kaew.

Fire engines from five local organizations were dispatched to the spreading blaze and had the last flames extinguished by 4:30pm.

Police have yet to determine the cause of the fire.
