And it was reported that 2 people died and 9 firefighters were injured. In addition, it was found that 3 cars and a motorcycle were damaged, requiring further investigation to determine the exact cause.

May use traffey fondue as a notification as well. If people find a risk point, they can report it to the district office.

However, Mr. Chatchart also said that in the future, it may be necessary to consider adjusting the building control law because at present, the amount of fuel in the building has not yet been determined. which considers that it has to start from itself first Survey the risks in the area first. and there will be more intense consideration of regulations As for the buildings, Must be a hand-held fire extinguisher. and equipment inside the building that should be there for protection

As for the case of two fires within a week, will it cause a loss of morale in the work or not? and will do the best The guidelines for helping building owners deceased injured and those affected this time Must discuss with the relevant legal authorities on what matters can be assisted.
