Blaze guts home in Phnom Penh

Fire destroyed a two-room house in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district on Wednesday – the fourth blaze to hit the capital in seven days. Neth Vantha, director of the Phnom Penh Fire Department, said: “The fire started at 10:50am when one of the room’s owners lit incense sticks and left for work.” He urged people to take extra care with incense sticks, candles and electrical appliances during the dry season. Last week, a blaze destroyed 243 homes in Russey Keo district.
