Tyre-shop owner Theerapong Rewkirakijkul, 34, told police that he, his wife, and two children aged 4 and 2 were asleep in the bedroom on the upper floor when they were woken up at around 3am by a burning smell and found the shop on fire.

 

They closed the door and called for help from the window. Neighbors responded in time and managed to help the family flee using a ladder. Firefighters broke open the shop’s metal door and put out the flames. The fire reportedly came from an air compressor or tyre inflator before spreading fast through flammable tyre piles. It is believed a short circuit may have started the fire.

 

In a separate incident, a fire erupted at 11.30pm on Saturday night at a family’s one-storey house near Wat Lam Mahamek in Pathum Thani province’s Lat Lum Kaeo district. The house made of tin sheets and wood was totally engulfed, neighbours said, but the house was unoccupied at the time as the family was away on a merit-making trip to Kanchanaburi.
