Fire engulfs market in Takeo
September 6, 2018
A fire engulfed hundreds of stalls at the Prey La’vea market in Takeo province’s Prey Kabbas district yesterday morning, destroying about five percent of the market.

Takeo Provincal Hall said in a statement that 120 stalls in the market were destroyed during the fire that began at about 1am, leading to thousands of dollars in damages.

Provincial police chief Sok Samnang, who led firefighters to tackle the blaze, said three fire trucks were used in the operation.

Leng Bunlong, deputy chief of Prey Kabbas district, said a short circuit led to the fire.
“The fire started in a stall that sells cosmetics,” he said. “The hairspray and other things exploded easily, spreading the fire. We are investigating.”

He noted that during the battle to extinguish the blaze, firefighters were worried that it would spread to gasoline tanks stored outside the market. However, the firefighters were able to prevent such an incident.

Neth Vantha, Fire Prevention Department director at the ministry, said that 40 percent of fires in the Kingdom were due to short-circuiting.
