Mourners shocked as coffin bursts into flames three days before cremation

Relatives at a funeral in Thap Sakae, Prachuap Khirikhan were shocked when fire broke out in the early hours of the morning at a pavilion in a temple. 

 

Dried flowers and wreaths caught fire and a coffin containing a grandmother was damaged.

 

It happened on Sunday at Wat Thung Putthi in Ang Thong sub-district. The coffin was in place for bathing rites ahead of the actual cremation on Wednesday.

Funeral director Opas Simfa said he'd never experienced this in 30 years of the business. 

 

Apparently more decorative lights short circuited.

But a new coffin and more expense was not required. 

 

The relatives just turned the coffin round so the undamaged side would face the mourners.

 I wonder if this will plant the seeds of an idea? Now that the cremation of the Red Bull case witness has been delayed...

A few more flowers, another set of dodgy Chinese lights from Lazada and good to go...
