More than 200 people had to be evacuated when fire broke out at a North Pattaya massage center.

Pattaya Disaster Prevention and Mitigation firefighters were called to Pavilion Massage on Second Road near Soi 1 Feb. 13 and took about 5 minutes to extinguish the blaze. Damage was limited to a 10,000 baht air conditioner and no one was injured.

An employee said about 200 people, including a large tour group, fled the building after a fire alarm sounded. Investigators suspected a short in the air conditioner started the blaze.
