An incinerator caught fire on Koh Samui, off the coast of Surat Thani last night.

 

“That’s what incinerators are meant to do,” we hear you cry. But this one was totally out of control destroying the entire structure.

 

The Government Public Relation Department Region 5 reports that the fire started at the incinerator at 6pm last night. The fire spread across the facility, an area of 50 x 100 metres.

Well it was an empty building. 

Anything worth selling for scrap vanished 15 years ago.

Maybe now with the rest of the old structure gone the government will dip into it's pockets and build a nice new shiny modern incinerator.... sometime soon one hopes!

I thought the incinerator there was (nearly) inoperative leading to large mounds of trash nearby.  If so it’s time for the government to act.

They've been acting about this for years. It's otherwise known as a farce.

Any incinerator will not solve the problem as they also produce a lot of pollution.

the incinerator there has been inoperative for 7 years or so........I guess it doesn't matter if it's burnt down.

 

Of more concern would be anyone down wind of that fire and the fumes could be deadly.     

There is also the problem of anything like asbestos fallout or any other haz-chems that have been left there.

On top of that there is all the stuff that is washed into the ground and drains by the firefighting equipment.

This will of course not be fully addressed.
