Takeo, Cambodia News: In the evening of February 23, 2019, a busy Saturday night at 10:50 pm, a fire broke out at Chum Met 168 nightclub, in Snor village, Sangkat Rokar Knong, Don Keo city, Takeo. The owners were identified as San Eang, 49-year-old and his wife, Chea Sreymom, 49-year-old.

Fire damage costs were estimated to be around US$20,000, for air conditioners, band instruments, sofas and furniture,a few phones, plus lighting and bar equipment.The police called ten firetrucks to the scene and the fire was completely extinguished in 1 hour.

The cause of the fire has not been announced officially, but faulty electric wiring is often the origin of nightclub fires in Cambodia, when arson is not suspected.

I do not think it is recent. this happens all time (remember the big fire in Siem Reap, killing a number of people). Shitty wiring, no safety equipment or procedures, etc.

The reason I avoid these death traps.
