Safety checks by the local authority and DOPA officials in Pattaya on fire exits at some Walking Street clubs have found them in an unusable state. It is clearly a disaster waiting to happen and could mirror the tragedy at Mountain B nearby. Pornchai Sang-iat from the Banglamung authority led the team to the once popular bar area that has been undergoing a makeover recently; exits and extinguishers were checked. Picture: Daily News They found blocked fire exits that were potential death traps in the event of a conflagration, reported Daily News. Some establishments only had one front exit to the street and could not be adapted to provide another. Picture: Daily News ASEAN NOW notes that the checks are a delayed response to the disaster in Sattahip a few kilometers down the eastern seaboard. There at least 22 people have died in a horrific fire at a club called Mountain B on August 5th. Walking Street is a hodge-podge of bars, clubs and restaurants that critics say should be demolished to make way for something more modern and tourist friendly. And safer. -- © Copyright ASEAN NOW 2022-09-02 - Cigna offers a range of visa-compliant plans that meet the minimum requirement of medical treatment, including COVID-19, up to THB 3m.
