Once the fire brigade arrived it took them 20 minutes to bring the fire under control. The dead man was aged around 30-35 years old. After initial investigation the police took photographs of the incident and recorded it for evidence before detaining Mr. Boonchin (the 10 wheeler truck driver) to be prosecuted further according to the law.
