A loud explosion caused a major fire to a nightclub in Pattaya’s Walking Street on Sunday night.
Building manager Phakphum Klinsrisuk, 39, reportedly heard a loud explosion at around 9 pm from the second floor of The Nashaa Club, a famous restaurant and nightspot, which occupies four units of the commercial building.
Phakphum alerted two other staffers to evacuate the building and called firefighters, The Nation reported, adding that officials used 10 firetrucks to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby buildings and extinguished the fire at around 12.30am.
To ensure the safety of others, officials sealed off nearby areas due to the possibility of the building collapsing caused by the fire.
They are also collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses to find out the cause of the fire, the report added.
No injuries or deaths have been reported.
