Investigators find no bodies in charred ruins of SuperCheap, yet

PHUKET: Investigators searching the scorched remains of SuperCheap discovered no bodies yesterday but called for boots and rakes as they recommenced their search this morning.

“I have already requested the equipment from the Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor),” Phuket Governor Maitri Inthusut told the press today.

Amid concerns that the debris and smoke may pose an environmental hazard, officials from the Natural Resources and Environment Office will be on site today to conduct tests, he added.

Governor Maitri noted that the fire area will be sealed off for 45 days or until investigators from Region 8 Police Forensics* finish their investigation.

Meanwhile, SuperCheap began selling fresh vegetables at their nearby warehouse, located on Prachasamakee Road near the power plant in Koh Kaew, and at other branches of their store.

*The original report said the officers were from the Department of Special Investigation.
