Lightning strike sets fire to East Pattaya house


PATTAYA:--A Halloween lightning strike to a radio tower set fire to an East Pattaya home on Soi Khao Talo 15.

Firefighters took about 30 minutes to contain the blaze at the single-story home around 3:30 p.m. Oct. 31. No one was at home at the time and a damage estimate was unavailable, although the house was gutted.

The fire apparently began when a bolt of lightning struck a 5-meter-tall radio antenna wired into the house. Witness Jakkrit Malisorn, 41, said he heard a loud crack and saw sparks running along the cable
