Pattaya, 29 April 2011 [Pattaya Daily News]: Police Captain Pitak Noensang (Police Investigation of Pattaya Police Station) together with the rescue team and two fire trucks rushed to Chao Phraya Resort in Soi Dang-Dam where a fire had been reported.
The fire began in room 313 on the top floor of the three-storey building, according to a police official, describing that the blaze had severely burnt the entire room.

Guests of the resort were distressed as they evacuated down the fire escape doorway taking with them as many belongings as possible, the police commented.

However, the guest of the charred room, Kuchmazokova Svetlana, 23, was unable to salvage her possessions, as she gagged for air while running to safety, Captain Pitak said.

The devastated Russian said she saw the fire coming from the back of her room while she was in the swimming pool with her friends.

Immediately she rushed to her room but was not able to tackle the fire that became increasingly strong. Instead she informed the resort staff to extinguish the fire, Kuchmazokova reported.

 

Uktri Phadungpak, 19, resort employee hurried to the scene as soon as he was notified of the fire.
However, he could not put down the fire because the resort did not have a fire extinguisher, Uktri said, adding that he evacuated all guests from the blazing area instead.

Smoke rose into the sky as fire fighters hose down the building, which took approximately fifteen minutes to complete, a fireman described.

The properties in room 313 were smouldered and blackened, including the Russian’s money and passport while adjacent rooms 312 and 314 suffered less severe burn.

Fortunately nobody was caught or injured by the fire, an officer commented.

Police will conduct thorough investigation into the cause of the fire, which was estimated to have damaged more than 500,000 Baht worth of properties, a police officer stated.
