Tuk Tuk Catches Fire with Family Inside

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Aug 09, 2018 2:51 pm

Phnom Penh, Cambodia News: A Pass App Tuk Tuk caught fire this morning, while it was transporting a family of 4 passengers, a mother and 3 little kids, at 8 am on 9 August 2018, on street 271 in Phnom Penh.

Thankfully, the local people rallied around to help by using a fire extinguisher, which put out the fire on time, so there was nobody injured.
The cause of the fire is unknown, or has not been announced.

Interesting my driver of a regular tuk tuk said only yesterday that these types of problems would occur due to drivers being too stupid to know the dangers of gas

There's absolutely no sign of a fire, so must have been minor.
