A Thai woman house owner returned from a dinner-date with a new foreign boyfriend on April 28, 2008, to find her bungalow in Pattaya Park Hill 2 had suffered considerable fire damage. She suspected her jealous Irish husband had torched the house in a fit of pique over her new affair.

Following an alarm call at 00.10am, on April 28, Pattaya Investigator, Pol.Lt.Col. Thanadet Duengtapiyachai, sent a police investigative team and 10 fire engines from Ta-kien Tia Fire Department, to tackle the fire at a bungalow in Moo Baan Pattaya Park Hill 2.

The rapid response squad arrived to find the bungalow’s bedroom on fire with flames and smoke pouring out of the window. Fire fighters took about 10 minutes to extinguish the fire. Fortunately, nobody was injured as the three temporary residents had escaped the flames previously. Officers examined the bedroom and found the contents totally burned out, in addition to fire damage in other parts of the house, amounting all told to an estimated cost of Bt 300,000.

Miss Uraiwan Busaba (29), the house owner, told police that she had gone out for dinner with her new foreign boyfriend, leaving her three relatives in the house. She said that her Irish husband, Mr. William Francis Manuel, had originally given her the money to buy the house. Recently, however, she’d had a dispute with her husband and wanted to arrange a separation.

Miss Uraiwan told police that her relatives, who were staying in the bungalow at the time, told her that at the start of the fire her husband had been in the house. However, shortly after, he had run out of the house, ignoring the fire. She suspected that her vengeful husband could well have been the one who set the house on fire in retaliation for her having gone out for dinner with another foreign boyfriend. Accordingly, police will search for Miss Uraiwan’s husband, who is currently missing, to further investigate the real cause of the fire.
