A fire broke out at a souvenir shop in Nay Pyi Taw’s township market around 9:45 pm yesterday. Fortunately, the fire was quickly extinguished at 10:22 p.m. before it spread any further.
The fire originated from a Nan Sein cake and souvenir shop called Thu Htet, although the cause of the incident is still under investigation.
U Hlaing Win Aung, Deputy Director of Myanmar Fire Services Department, said they deployed 15 Level-1 fire engines and 30 Level-2 fire engines when they heard the report of the fire. He said the strength of 300 firefighters was able to put out the flames and prevent it from spreading to anywhere else. He said a quick observation shows the fire destroyed only the products inside Thu Htet store. — Myo Thu Hein
