Pattaya, the 1st of October 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: At approximately 12:30pm on Friday, local authorities and the Pattaya City Fire Department were notified of a raging fire on the top floor of the ‘Top Bakery’ and ‘108 Shop’ (mini-mart) in Soi Chaiyapruk, Jomtien.

Arriving at the scene, opposite the Pattaya Daily News Offices, fire crews worked quickly to extinguish the blaze, which was threatening to spread to adjacent buildings. The fire had ignited in a top floor room of the ‘Top Bakery,’ the last in a line of four storey shop-houses on the northern Jomtien side of Soi Chaiyapruk.

Within minutes of local residents noticing the fire it had already partially destroyed the roof of the popular German bakery, with fire seen lashing the adjacent room and protruding from the road-facing balcony. No injuries have been reported by authorities.

Local police closed a large portion of the Chaiyapruk Road while firemen worked to extinguish the fire, with a substantial gathering of local residents and passing motorists stopping to catch a glimpse of the incident.

Due to the location of the fire, at the rear of the four-storey building, fire crews initially tackled the blaze using a water cannon from one of four Pattaya City Fire Department trucks attending the scene.

Subsequently battling the blaze from inside, the fire was completely extinguished in just over 30 minutes, testament to the quick response of local emergency crews who attended the scene less than 5-minutes after the blaze was reported.

At present,the fire is suspected to have been started by several incense sticks that had been left burning in the room by its occupants.  Investigations will continue at the scene once the building has been declared safe by emergency services.
