PHUKET: Police have confirmed that an electrical fault from a streetfront sign sparked a fire that engulfed a clothes shop and six other shops in a small arcade on Bangla Rd on Monday morning (Oct 12).

 

Lt Col Kittisak Sommat of the Patong Police told The Phuket News today (Oct 14) that investigators have confirmed that the fire was not intentional.

 

“Witnesses confirmed that the fire started from sparks from an electrical sign in front of the shop,” he said.

Dodgy or unmaintained wiring with some rain thrown in for good measure, what could possibly go wrong..

“All the shops are covered by fire insurance, I have already spoken with the insurance agent about the fire and we are waiting for the official report of forensic science investigators so we can hand that over to the agent,” he said.

 

I think the insurance company (not the agent who has nothing to do with claims) might want to do their own investigation somehow!
