Fire guts Pattaya club

A fire broke out at an entertainment venue on Pattaya City's walking street in Chon Buri's Bang Lamung district on Wednesday morning but no one was hurt.

 

Following the fire report at about 8am, Muang Pattaya Police Station investigation superintendent Colonel Chatchapil Pattarasiriporn contacted the Fire Department and five fire engines were dispatched.

 

It took firefighters about 30 minutes to extinguish the blaze, which destroyed the inside of the Rock Street Pattaya club. 

 

A cleaner told police she heard the transformer in front of the shop explode three times before the flames spread quickly in the business and she and fellow workers fled the building and alerted police.

Luckily, no naked girls were injured, because nudity has been eradicated by the authorities.

It was a live band music bar, with a transparent glass front. Not a place where you could find nudity.

Thailand needs to get some better quality transformers from somewhere. Used to have one explode on my soi once a year or so. I mean, if Thais are going to keep up their charming wiring practices.

 

Good news is how little damage was done to the neighboring buildings. I'm impressed.

In a normal lawful society, PEA would be responsible for all losses, so insurance not matter to the bar. So who knows what will happen here? I wonder if seafood place next door will have a special on smoked salmon.... "smoked on the premises" too

It seems the power authority is responsible for the fire and should pay for damages
