Fire blazing off Toul Tum Pong area

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

Woke up to blaring sirens racing past my place. Hope no ones hurt. :( This is around the TTP area. Can't pinpoint it for sure.

The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.

So sad. People are so vulnerable during fires.

Trucks are still going down there... Do they need fuel to pump the water in the hoses? Are they refuelling? Or do they need to go fill up water tanks somewhere? Have seen them at the cnr of MTT and st163

Damn...big one. Sad. Cause? I'm guessing electrical or the mini-gas cooker again? Lot of fires in this area and the narrow maze of streets with homes close together doesn't help
