People flee as flames engulf houses, vehicles amid blasts after Nakhon Ratchasima gas-truck crash

People fled for their lives as more than 10 residential buildings and 20 vehicles were engulfed in flames following a series of explosions when a gas truck crashed into an 18-wheeler in Nakhon Ratchasima early on Thursday, leading to an as-yet-unspecified number of injuries.

 

The gas truck lost control at 12.30am near an intersection in Nong Ki district and slid into the other truck. The crash generated a massive explosion to start with.

 

The gas then fuelled the spread of the fire around the area, which was shaken by further explosions, forcing everyone who lived nearby to run for their lives.

 

More than 50 fire trucks battled to extinguish the huge blaze before it expanded to other areas.

 

Rescuers had to rush the injured to hospital.

 

It took three hours to control the fire and a 5km-radius of the area around the explosions was closed.

 

The drivers of both the gas truck and the 18-wheeler miraculously survived after jumping out of their vehicles in the nick of time just before the explosion.

This reminds me of a 1971 truck accident in Hornsby NSW 

A fuel tanker rolled going around a bend

It ended up in a fire station

Needless to say that the fire engine was not used to quell the blaze

Is a bit confusing isn't it. I've just looked up Nong Ki district and it's the western most district of Buriram. So that looks a likely bet. We have relatives in  Nakhon Ratchasima, so we're keen to know the true location as well.
