Fire scare near Angkor Wat temple complex

More than 10 hectares of forest near the Angkor Wat temple complex burned yes­terday during a blaze in Siem Reap’s Norkor Thom com­mune.

Deputy director of the Authority of the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Angkor, Sok Leakhena, said the fire spread to within seven kilo­meters of the Angkor Wat temples.

“It didn’t harm any of the villagers because we con­trolled the fire, however, it damaged some of their crops,” he said, adding that it took three hours and eight fire trucks to ex­tin­guish the blaze.
