Thai media Daily News drew the connection between working at home - now known in Thailand by the ubiquitous WFH acronym - and the explosion of a transformer.

 

The equipment on a landing at a housing development on Phuttaraksa Road in Samut Prakan blew up leading to a long power cut in one building.

 

Comment was rife on social media as the event was filmed with people fleeing the fire in terror.

Daily News said that many people were at home using electricity and this combined with faulty equipment looks to be the cause. 

 

The power cut made for a difficult time for many working from home. 

 

The juristic person repaired the damaged transformer.

The photo above shows a  3 phase fuse box  not a transformer.

 

would have looked something like this before the fire ( probable birds nest included 😋)

That why it said erroneously, "The juristic person repaired the damaged transformer", as a transformer would be under the jurisdiction of the PEA.

That's the problem with non-practical reporters writing articles. I bet most of them would refer anything that's single phase mains and above as either only a transformer or a power pole.

 

Thanks posting a clear photo to explain it.

Good job in was only minor damage then.

I would not trust our JP to straighten a bent paperclip.

People were using the electricity provided. What were they thinking. Very selfish of them.

Faulty equipment. In Thailand? Really?

So the simple repair didn't phase them?
