BAD WIRING IGNITES HOME IN SVAY RIENG
A fire gutted one home in Svay Rieng province’s Svay Teap district on Tuesday night. Witnesses said that it was fortunate the fire did not spread to nearby residences. One bystander said authorities had difficulty putting out the blaze because the province lacks fire trucks. The owner of the house said the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction and started when he was asleep at night. Police said that no one was injured, but that everything in the house was damaged.
