HE Kouch Chamroeun, Governor of Preah Sihanouk province, went directly to the scene to command the firefighters. According to the report of the provincial police, the fire force took nearly two hours to extinguish the blaze, using two fire trucks and 14 tanks of water. Provincial police chief Lieutenant General Chuon Narin said that the fire was caused by an electrical fault.

The site of the fire was rented to the Chinese by the Khmer owner, Bou Sok Sok, and the case did not cause any injuries or spread to other places, the report added.

There's a 30A circuit breaker on the pole. It'll be the wiring or a socket that caught fire.
