A predawn fire raged warehouses of three companies providing cold storage services to fruits, vegetables and dried foods causing damages initially estimated at 50 million baht.

According to Klong Luang district police in Pathumthani province, the fire first started at the storage warehouse of SP Inter Fresh at about 2am.

The fire raged quickly because of the foams used as insulation system of cold storage facilities.

It then spread to other warehouses of two adjacent companiesSY Thai and Kingtha.

Over 10 fire trucks were rushed to fight the fire but were able to contain the fire only an hour later. Nobody was injuredin the fire.

Witnesses who were guards at SP Inter Fresh said the fire was spotted first at the circuit board of the storage room after an explosion was heard.
