Grocery fire kills one

One man died and three of his relatives were seriously injured after a fire broke out at a grocery shop in Kampong Thom province’s Sandan district, police officials said. District police officer Thor Him said that Meakh Sok, 26, died after bottles of petrol caught fire at his father’s shop in Dang Kambit commune on Sunday. “The grocery stall was completely destroyed,” he said, adding that Meakh Sok’s relatives were sent to Phnom Penh’s Calmette Hospital. District police chief Uong Mony said that the fire may have been caused by people drinking and smoking near the stall.
