Big fire .. old market i think

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.

Pic from about 7.30am this morning, everything on the roof level was destroyed.

The Cambodian Red Cross had arrived and set up chairs. Hopefully they were arranging some emergency accommodation or other help for the people who had lived up there.

A neighbour indicated to me that everyone got out alive, I hope that's true.

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: A report today says the fire was started by faulty electric wiring, and a total of eleven wooden shacks burnt down in the fire. They also say that the firefighters had a problem to control the outbreak because the water hoses don't reach as far as the fourth floor. (This information might be worth noting for expats living in an apartment block on the fourth floor or higher. )

Fortunately, no one died, but some very poor families lost all their possessions in the blaze.

Yes I thought that was particularly generous. I thought it could possibly be for all the affected families combined, but as UT clarifies, you just can't trust GT.

Do they even have land titles for those huts? It looks like the Vietnamese market community I had above an old apartment. They built illegally without sangkat permission in the night and stole electricity. That's why they were living in huts like that on the roof, they were generally shitty people squatting there only to be close to the nearby market.

Wow. Judgemental much? Do you think people live like that if they don't have to? Maybe they are just poor? They almost certainly have nothing left now.

I know about my neighbours. Why don't you tell me about yours? I asked and instead of answering you're going to personal attack. I'm thinking you don't know them at all.
