Fire destroys 11 homes

A FIRE in Pursat province’s Bakan district has destroyed 11 homes, six shops and a car, causing around US$200,000 worth of damage, an official said yesterday. District police chief Pen Tung said the blaze started on Sunday after a shrine caught fire in a house that doubled as a grocery and gas store at Svay Daunkeo market. “Only a 16-year-old girl was at the house when the fire began at about 1:30pm. She dared not shout for help until the fire became bigger and bigger,” he said.
