Blaze destroys buses, office

A fire raged early yesterday morning at the GST bus station in the capital’s Daun Penh district, destroying two buses, a car and the company’s office.

Chief of the municipal fire brigade Neth Vantha said the blaze started at about 3am when a large bus caught on fire, which then spread to another bus, a Mercedes-Benz and eventually the GST offices.

“The fire started in a bus parked near the office. A bus driver, who was sleeping in the bus, said the fire started in the engine, and he crawled out the window to escape,” Neth Vantha said.

He said it took 11 fire engines and two or three hours to finally extinguish the blaze, which witnesses said was in close proximity to a petrol station.
