Fire at Cobra Gold Karaoke, St 51, Phnom Penh

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.

Fire at Cobra Gold Karaoke, St 51, Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh: The Cobra Gold karaoke parlor was hit by a fire on the second floor, on the corner of Sts 254 and 51, Sangkat Chaktomok, Khan Daun, Phnom Penh at 11:30 pm on April 20, 2018.

Workers saw smoke coming from the karaoke room and alerted the Daun Penh fire station who arrived with other Phnom Penh fire trucks to put out the blaze.
One fire-fighter was overcome by smoke and had to be hospitalized, but, fortunately, apart from that there were no causalities.

Update: It was later reported that there were two fire-fighters who passed out due to intense heat and lack of oxygen inside the building.
