BANGKOK, 9 May 2012 (NNT) – A fire broke out in Bangkok’s Dusit District, burning over 10 commercial buildings on Wednesday morning. Fire-fighters rushed to the scene and were successful in putting out the blaze.

As a community in Wat Yuan, close to the Bo-bae Market near Maha Nak Intersection, was on fire, panicking residents fled the scene in chaos. The fire was believed to start from a four-storey commercial building and spread to nearby buildings. Two people have been injured in the incident and are now under medical attention.

Fire fighters were reportedly had difficult time in reaching the scene, as the roads were small and crowded, thus impassable for big fire trucks.

The Wat Yuan community was on fire once in 2008. Around 20 households were damaged and three people injured in that incident.
