    1 killed, 20 injured in gas pipe explosion in Samut Prakan

    A gas pipe explosion at a Samut Prakan industrial site killed 1 and injured 20 others. Flames burst in the air and those at homes in the province’s Bang Bo district fled the area. At this time, there’s been 1 confirmed death, an elderly bedridden woman, but Thai media reports there could be another death.


    Around 40 to 50 fire engines were called to the scene to extinguish the fire at the site near Wat Preng Ratbanrung on Thepparat-Lat Krabang Road. The mayor of the tambon Preng administration organisation reported the incident in a broadcast on the traffic radio station JS100.


    The gas pipe that exploded leads to the large-scale Asia Industrial Estate Suvarnabhumi, according to the senior executive vice president of PTT’s gas business unit.

    3 dead in gas pipeline explosion in Samut Prakan

    Three people were killed and about 28 others injured when NGV gas leaked from a pipeline and ignited, opposite a temple in the Bang Bo district of Samut Prakan province earlier today, before 1pm.


    Officials from PTT Plc, which owns the pipeline, are at the scene, in Preng subdistrict, to discover the cause of the gas leak at a gas station.






    Meanwhile, officials from the Department of Pollution Control have been on site, to check for hazardous substances which may have been left at the scene of the explosion and which may threaten the health of people in the neighborhood.


    An official from the Department of Pollution Control said that NGV gas is normally completely burned, leaving only soot, which may be carried away by wind to areas far away from the scene of explosion.


    Rescue workers and fire trucks rushed to the scene and helped evacuate residents and students, from a community next to the temple to the office of the Tambon Administration Organization, for temporary refuge.
