On 4 December 2007, at 11am, a secondhand goods warehouse, located at 70/5 Moo 7, Pong, Banglamung, Chonburi, at the junction going to Rayong Province, caught on fire. The burning warehouse was on ten rai of land. The damage was estimated at about one million baht.

Mr. Somsak Pholachai (21) from Sra-gaew Province, a security guard at the gate of the secondhand goods warehouse, told officials that he was on guard duty, as usual, from 7am to 7pm. Suddenly, a startled Mr. Korn, his colleague, ran to tell him that the warehouse was ablaze. Mr. Somsak, along with five other workers, attempted to extinguish the fire and promptly informed the fire department. Before the fire department could arrive, the fire spread rapidly due to a strong wind and the presence of many inflammable objects in the building such as a plastic tank and plastic bags. There was extensive damage.Four fire trucks from Pattaya City, two from Nongprue and one from Khao-Mai-gaew arrived to battle the blaze. It took fire fighters over an hour to bring the fire under control. Fire investigators speculated that the source of the fire was from burning grass on the side street that had spread to the warehouse which contained many inflammable objects.

The owners of the secondhand goods warehouse, Mrs. Orathai Gaewsai and Mr. Somphob, were not present at the site when the fire broke out. There were only five employees at the warehouse at the time. The owners estimated damage at about one million baht.
