To the editor,

I am writing in response to your article "The friendliest

little guest house in town" (Feb 24 - March 9, 1995) about the burning down of

Maly Chenda's in Sihanoukville.

The fire, we believe, was not started by

a faulty generator.

A moto-taxi driver reported later the next day that

he had seen a person running from the house just prior to the fire

The building that burnt down on Feb 12 was the waterfront

restaurant, near where the owner, my sister and her family, lived.


Chenda's guesthouse is located further up the road near the Post Office and is

welcoming to and open for business.
