After receiving the emergency call, more than 16 firemen in three fire trucks arrived at the Madras Cafe on Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd at 9:20pm to counter the blaze.

After shutting the power off and taking just 15 minutes to douse the flames, the fire teams prevented the fire from destroying the cafe or spreading to adjoining businesses.

The Chief of the Patong Municipality Fire Department, who asked not to be named, told The Phuket News that the fire started in the overhead fume hood in the kitchen.

“We were able to quickly bring the fire under control, with the restricted to the kitchen only. No adjoining buildings were damaged and thankfully no people were injured in the fire,” he said.

Was the overhead fume hood weekly cleaned? Undone of fat and grease?
A normal cleaning procedure to prevent fire starts like this.

Are the answers:  No,.. and,..No? Than try a fire accident.
Is the fire brigade inspection department visiting the restaurant kitchens to see on that?
