Fire Guts Garbage Landfills in Phuket Town – Video

Phuket –

A fire gutted garbage landfills in the Phuket City Municipality near Saphan Hin Public Park in Phuket Town.

The Phuket City Municipality told the Phuket Express that they were notified of the fire at 2:00 A.M. on Saturday in the early morning (February 17th). Firefighters with fire engines from the Phuket City Municipality, the Wichit Municipality, and the Rassada Municipality arrived at the scene. The fire spread widely across the landfill site.

Firefighters sprayed the fire to prevent it spreading out of the landfills and into nearby incinerators and factories, as well as other buildings associated with the landfill site.

As of this morning smoke continued to rise from the landfill site although the fire was under control. Local residents were informed to wear masks and stay inside if possible.
