    400 people evacuated from hotel blaze in Pattaya

    Some 400 people were evacuated after a fire broke out at a Holiday Inn Hotel in Pattaya in the early hours of Friday (December 6), but no casualties were reported.

    Officers from Pattaya Police Station were informed of the fire at Holiday Inn Hotel in Soi Buakhao, Nong Prue subdistrict in the Banglamung district at 4.30am. They rushed to the scene together with firefighters, disaster mitigation staff, rescue volunteers and a medical team from Muang Pattaya Hospital.


    Officers and volunteers helped evacuate around 400 hotel guests and staff, including foreign tourists, children, elderly and disabled persons to safety, while firefighters spent 30 minutes using water cannons to subdue the blaze.


    A hotel security guard said that he saw smoke coming from the balcony of a room on the front side of the building, and then the fire spread quickly due to strong winds.

    A preliminary inspection by police officers said that the fire had occurred at the front part of the hotel while the central and rear parts were still intact. The cause of the fire will be further investigated while the damage was initially estimated at at least Bt1 million.

    Ha ha Yeahi hear ya


    Smoke on the Water
    Song by Deep Purple


    LYRICS

    We all came out to PATTAYA to go to to pussy bars
    ON D DARKSIDE
    To make sexytime with a noi
    We didn't have much time
    Frank Zappa and the Mothers
    Were at the best place around
    But some stupid with a flare gun
    Burned the place to the ground
    Smoke on the water, fire in the sky
    Smoke on the water
    They burned down the gambling house.
    It died with an awful sound. But thank fuck the hoe house was ok
    Funky Luigi was running in and out
    Looking for a date.
    When it all was over
    We had to find another place(bar)
    But Swiss( pattaya time was running out. The BIB were on there way
    It seemed that we would lose the race
    Smoke on the water, fire in the sky. Then an aussie guy sold us some pies
