No one was injured in the fire at the warehouse of Samsung SDS Global SCL (Thailand) Co Ltd on Bang Na-Trat Road in Tambon Bang Pli Yai of Samut Prakan’s Bang Pli district.
The Bang Kaew Police Station was alerted to the fire at 11pm and 20 fire engines from the Bang Pli Yai tambon administrative organisation (TAO) and nearby TAOs were rushed to the scene.
Firefighters found that the blaze had started from the back of the warehouse, where washing machines and cooler coils of air-conditioners and other appliances with a lot of paper packaging boxes were stored.
Firefighters took about an hour to control the blaze but it had swept through the pile of electric appliances and paper boxes at the back of the warehouse before it spread inside the warehouse and damaged some goods stored there.
A security officer told police that he had left his watch point to use the washroom when the fire started.
He and other security officers tried to control the blaze with chemical extinguishers but failed, so they called police.
Police suspected that the fire was caused by a short circuit.
The company has yet to estimate the damage.
