Police booth demolished after fire

PHUKET: A police booth at the intersection of Patipat Rd and Ranong Rd has been demolished after being badly damaged in a fire at 3 am on Saturday.

Phuket City Police Station Superintendant Col Paween Pongsirin discounted rumours that the fire had been started by vandals, or by a bomb placed by gangsters. He told the Gazette it was thought the blaze had been caused by an electrical fault.

Col Paween said the police booth was donated by the Rotary Club in 1999, but had not been used for some time, so there was no need to rebuild it.
