Two people were killed in a fire which spread to four houses in Bangkok’s Dusit district early this morning (Tuesday).

The fire broke out at about 2.30am in a wooden house, located at the end of Soi 13 in the Samsen community, and quickly spread to three adjoining houses. Multiple fire engines rushed to the scene, but only managed to get half way down the narrow lane leading to the community, with firemen having to pull the fire hoses to the end of the lane to extinguish the fire.

It took them about an hour to put the fire out, but the four houses could not be saved.

A search of one of the houses found two charred bodies, which are yet to be identified. One other person was injured.

The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
