Fishing trip boats destroyed by fire
A fire destroyed eight tourist fishing boats in Satun province early on Saturday, police said.
The fire broke out at the Pak Bara pier and spread quickly from a fishing boat to seven other boats.
The boats were used to take tourists out to fish in the sea.
La-ngu district chief Thani Hayimasa rushed to the scene to direct the firefighting operation but all the eight boats were completely gutted.
The cause of the fire is being investigated.
