5th floor fire breaks out at Sihanoukville guest house

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.

5th floor fire breaks out at Sihanoukville guest house

A fire broke out on the fifth floor of an apartment block/guesthouse in Sihanoukville last night. I don't recognize it. Any guesses ?

Fortunately the fire was put out before it spread and no one was hurt, but with all the huge buildings going up in Sihanoukville now, it's just a matter of time before something nasty happens.
Before the recent building boom, most places were 2,3 or 4 stories high, so in case of a fire, at worst you could imagine leaping on to the heap of rubbish under your window and a few broken bones.
Now the buildings are too high and they are collecting the rubbish. :?

new buildings, seen a few, not in sihanoukville, noted more the thin, to my view, size of the vertical and horizontal concrete pillars on tall multi-story buildings, sure i dont know enough about this to be quoted, but i had assumed they were Chinese build to the same specification as all the buildings that collapsed in the great https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2008_Sichuan_earthquake
