Daily Mail reports that CCTV footage captured the former head of the warehouse walking into the building with what appeared a piece of paper.

Another clip shows the flames started flickering on top of a container in the warehouse, which stores thousands of liters of oil tanks.

Massive damage

The publication reports that the blazing fire caused £900,000 (over R19 million) worth of damage due to the highly flammable oil. It reportedly took 40 fire engines and over four hours to put the fire out.

More than ten houses near the warehouse were also destroyed while one villager suffered burns on her arm but is doing fine now.

Thailand’s Major General Chomchawin Purthananon said:

“This is the second time a fire has started from this factory. The woman has been working for Prapakorn Oil for nine years.

“She said her employer complained to her and caused her stress every day, and she did not expect the fire she started to cause this level of damage.”
