A massive fire broke out, destroying three connected motorcycle parts shops in Loei, Thailand, causing several explosions.

 

The blaze, which started at 8:30 pm yesterday, was the worst the province has seen in 11 years. Firefighters worked tirelessly for approximately two hours to subdue the flames.

 

The fire took place in Saeng Thong Parts, prompting a quick response from the municipal fire brigade. The presence of highly combustible items, including motorcycle tyres, spray paint cans, engine oils, and other lubricants, exacerbated the situation. Over 2,000 paint cans and 1,000 bottles of oil exploded about every three seconds for an hour, feeding the flames even more.

 

The large-scale operation saw participation from over 100 personnel across multiple agencies, such as municipal teams from Loei and Na Aan, the highway department, police, military, and volunteer rescue squads. Working together, they fought one of the most significant fires in the province since a five-story warehouse fire in 2013.

 

The extensive damage at Saeng Thong Parts has led officials to launch a thorough investigation into the cause of the fire. This incident serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers of storing flammable materials and the bravery of firefighters and rescue services.

 

As the community recovers from the sizable blaze, the focus now shifts to the investigation results and necessary measures to prevent future such incidents.

Oh the worked tirelessly for 2 hours to subdue the flames, must have been a big fire.... NOT. 

 

What about fires that take 6 or 8 hours?  I'm more surprised that they didn't run out of water given this heat.
