House blaze claims sisters in Phnom Penh

A house fire in Phnom Penh’s Tuol Kork district on Monday night killed two sisters, authorities said. Touch Vanny, 28, and Touch Vantha, 26, died inside their rented house in Teuk La’ak 3 commune on Monday after electrical wires sparked a fire, said Neth Vantha, director of Phnom Penh’s Municipal Fire Department. Three relatives of the deceased sisters, who were also inside the house at the time, were rescued by neighbours and fire authorities. “The two victims died before the arrival of fire fighter trucks and our intervention,” he said, adding that the fire authority used eight fire trucks to help extinguish the blaze.
