SIHANOUKVILLE - A fire broke out in the early hours of the morning on 6 February, burning down two wooden houses behind Sihanoukville market. It is suspected that the blaze was caused by a cooking fire in one of the two houses. One man was badly burnt in the incident and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Word on the street is it was a dispute over the family home. Parents had died and the kids were arguing about money. One of the siblings started the fire.
When the house was burning he realized his wife and baby were inside - he caught alight when he ran in to save them.

Don't believe it. I think he ran it to rescue the contract from a Chinese guy who offered him $500,000 for the empty lot. :stir:
