Sattahip, the 22nd of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 12:00pm on Friday, Plutaluang Administration Organization President Mr. Thaweep Taengkaew received a report that a fire was raging out of control on a block of grass land at Sarmagkhee 5 Village, Moo 1, Sattahip. Relief officials and a fire truck rushed to the scene to extinguish the blaze.

  

At the scene – an 80m2 block of grassland – the firemen discovered a large out of control fire blazing and spreading rapidly towards nearby residence, due to a strong wind. Residents of the 10 nearby houses were running around in a panic in fear of their houses. Due to the adverse weather conditions the fire took nearly 30 minutes to extinguish. Thankfully, as a result of the fire departments quick response no houses or property were damaged by the fire, although power was lost to the surrounding houses for a short period but has again been restored by municipal officers.

After the fire had been extinguished relief officers discovered that the blaze had accidently been caused by Dr. Richard Chainvald [64] an American national and Plutaluang Rotary Club Member. Dr. Chainveld explained that he had been burning some rubbish and natural waste when the wind picked up carrying some embers from the fire onto the nearby grassland; he stated that the fire had gotten out of his control within seconds so he ran inside to inform the fire department.

Dr. Chainvald expressed his gratitude to the fast acting and effective firemen who responded to the call-out also apologizing profusely to his neighbours who had been affected by the incident. Dr. Chainvald  stressed that he would not be burning any more waste for fear of a repeat of today’s events.
