A devastating fire broke out at the Krischorn Health Massage Shop, an establishment located on Soi Pha-niang, Ratsada in the northern part of Phuket Town. The incident, which occurred at 10am on Friday, November 17, left the salon heavily damaged despite the swift actions of local firefighters who responded to the distress call.

The Phuket City Municipality, in response to this unfortunate incident, has urged residents and business owners to promptly report any fires by dialling the emergency hotline number 199. This appeal underscores the importance of swift response in mitigating the extent of damage caused by such disasters.

Firefighters from Phuket City Municipality were called to the scene and managed to extinguish the blaze. However, the massage salon had already suffered extensive damage by the time the fire was brought under control. The severity of the damage highlights the destructive power of fire and the lasting impact it can have on businesses and livelihoods.

The Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) branch at Phuket City Municipality is currently probing the cause of the fire. The officers have so far refrained from making any speculation on what could have sparked the blaze. This cautious approach ensures that any conclusions drawn are based on thorough investigations and reliable evidence.

Interestingly, photographs taken at the scene revealed severe fire damage to a wall near a small blessings altar inside the shop. These altars are a common feature in Thai establishments, where lit candles and incense are typically placed as part of traditional practices. However, it is yet to be ascertained if this played a role in the onset of the fire.

This incident serves as a stark reminder of the critical importance of fire safety measures and the need for quick action in response to such emergencies. The Phuket City Municipality’s call to its citizens to promptly report fires is a step in the right direction towards ensuring the safety and well-being of its residents.
