Fire-fighters battle a blaze that broke out at a cloth-screening shop-house on Kanchanapisek Road in Bangkok

A fire broke out at a cloth-screening factory on Kanchanapisek Road in Bangkok's Bang Bon district yesterday morning, killing a 12-year-old boy and injuring three male workers, police said.

The incident took place at a three-storey shop-house belonging to PMI Product Co Ltd. It took 10 fire engines 30 minutes to put out the fire. The body of 12-year-old Natchanan Saelim - the son of a worker - who was doing his homework at the time, was discovered on the second floor. The fire reportedly resulted from the explosion of a clothes press on the ground floor.
