Fire deaths

A night-time fire killed two young brothers and razed 51 houses in the capital's

Daun Penh district on August 9. Pav Dina, 15, and Pav Rithy, 12, were sleeping on

the balcony of their uncle's house when the fire started around 11 p.m. Village chief

Mey Choeun said a leaking cooking gas cylinder was responsible. Residents complained

that firemen wanted $200 per tender before they would tackle the blaze, and prevented

local people from fighting the flames.
