Firefighters were alerted to the blaze at The Base Central Phuket condominium project on Muang Naka Rd in Wichit subdistrict at around 3.30pm today (Aug 10).

 

The fire started on the ground level of the building which is still under construction and is scheduled for completion in 2020, according to the developer's website.

This developer doesn’t have much luck in Phuket.  Another one of their projects at Maikhao as been under reconstruction while occupied since 2015.   It’s a small wonder nobody has been seriously hurt there yet.

Maybe its the area that is prone to fire.. Floresta went up in flames too just after soft opening...

 

True.. But it was a sidekick.. Joking aside.. Hope nobody was hurt.

Probably some Burmese workers live on site and left a cooking fire burning after passing out from too much laokhao and ya dong.

Happens all the time in Bangkok.

Surprised they still have condo construction projects, in the face of this mighty Baht.  This begs the question: who is the target buyer?

Investigators have not yet determined the cause of the fire that broke out at a building site behind Central Floresta yesterday afternoon.

 

The fire caused the road, running behind the shopping mall – Muang Naka Road – on the same road as Headstart international school, to be closed off to traffic for several hours as emergency services battled to get the blaze under control.

 

Four fire units attended the blaze along with ambulances and police. One 29 year old contstruction worker was take to hospital with breathing difficulties.

 

The Base Central Phuket condo project was still under construction when it caught fire around 3pm. The fire is reported to have started on the ground level of the half-finished project.

 

Police have no idea what caused the fire to start – it burned billowing smoke into he sky for more than an hour.

Tim Newton reported on the blaze as it was underway from the roof of Central Floresta.

In that location it'll be mainly Thais as the target market. The value of the baht doesn't affect them. Not all condos are targeted at foreigners.
