Phuket Municipality Fire Department was notified of the fire at 1:20pm, reported Capt Suwit Yodwan of the Phuket City Police.

Firefighters soon arrived at the shophouse, home to the clothes store called “NIM”, with three water trucks and took only 15 minutes to douse the fire.

A chair and a water tank were damaged, but there were no injuries from the fire, reported Capt Suwit.

Clothes shop owner Rungthiwaporn Khajonchai told police that the shop was closed when the fire broke out.

A female friend who lived nearby reported the fire, and called Ms Rungthiwaporn to come to the store, Capt Suwit said.

The friend told police that she had heard an explosion and went to see what had caused it. When she looked behind the shophouse she saw the fire already underway, he added.

Capt Suwit noted that police were still working on identifying what had caused the fire.

Get yourself safe smart 1st world electric works done in your shops. And when you go home, switch of the electricity in such shops as you not selling ice cream.  :-) Safety first. If not, try a explosion/fire.
