Thalang –

A fire has destroyed a luxury restaurant owned by a foreigner in Thalang with many millions of baht of damages, say Thalang Police.

The Thalang Police were notified of the fire at 1:30 P.M. on Sunday (December 3rd) at the Project Artisan restaurant opposite Soi Khok Tanod 6 in Cherng Talay. Fire fighters with two fire engines and the Phuket Express team arrived at the scene shortly after the initial call.

The fire was found to be heavily ablaze at the restaurant and it took about half an hour to control the fire. The restaurant was totally destroyed and the total cost of damages is reportedly in the millions of baht.

Witnesses told the Phuket Express that they first saw smoke coming from the roof of the venue and then the fire quickly spread inside the restaurant. At the time, there were many foreign customers who were eating food but luckily they managed to escape from the restaurant without any injuries. Staffers tried to put out the fire while waiting for firefighters but were unsuccessful.

At this stage the cause of the fire is believed to have started from a pizza oven before the fire spread across the business premises. However, the exact cause of the fire is still being investigated by the Phuket Forensic Police as of press time.

The Phuket Express noted that the restaurant belongs to a foreigner who rents the land . The restaurant is very famous with lots of foreign customers but the exact name of the owner has been withheld by police to the press.
