Five Killed as Three-Storey House Collapses in Bangkok

A wore out three-story house imploded on the edges of the Thai capital Bangkok on Saturday, killing at any rate five individuals, media said and film imparted to Reuters appeared.

The structure burst into flames on Saturday morning and was put out about an hour later, media reports said. The reason for the fire was obscure.

The video imparted to Reuters showed the seared, darkened structure imploding in the midst of a haze of smoke and solid residue, missing a fireman who was ascending a stepping stool on the bordering divider to investigate and who just figured out how to get away from the falling trash.

“I heard the sound of something breaking and the entire structure descended inside split seconds,” one fireman who shot and posted the video on his Facebook account told Reuters.

“The salvage group were advised to leave the structure in light of the fact that the design looked feeble,” he added.

At any rate five individuals were murdered, including one inhabitant and four salvage laborers, media said.

The quest for survivors was canceled in the evening.
