Fire at fuel storage compound causes K15 million in damage

A fire broke out at a fuel storage compound of Min Min, 31, in Thamandaw Village, Patheingyi Township, Mandalay Region, on 24 December afternoon.
The fire started from sparks at a nozzle of a hose as it was being used to siphon fuel from the bowser to barrels. The fire engulfed one oil bowser, two trucks and 44 barrels worth K15.64 million.
About 240 firefighters led by Deputy Director-General U Than Kyaw Kyaw and officials of the Upper Myanmar Fire Services Department put out the fire with the use of 55 fire trucks, three management vehicles and water bowsers.
Two injured people were sent to Mandalay General Hospital.
The Ohnchaw police station in Patheingyi Township filed a lawsuit against Min Min, under Section 285 of the Penal Code, for causing a fire to break out.–Maung Pyi Thu (Mandalay)
