Fire rips through warehouse in capital

A fire ripped through a kitchenware warehouse yesterday afternoon in Phnom Penh, damaging products stored inside.

Lieutenant Colonel Oum Chantha, deputy chief of the municipal fire department, said the fire broke out at about 2.30pm at the warehouse located in Chbar Ampov district’s Chbar Ampov II commune.

“We used about 20 fire trucks to put out the fire. The situation is 100 percent under control,” Lt Col Chantha said. “We do not yet know what caused the fire and the costs of the damages. No one died or was injured when the fire broke out at the warehouse.”

He added that the kitchen products stored inside the warehouse were imported from Thailand and Vietnam.
