Broken-down taxi destroyed by fire

Friday, 22 February 2013 From Issue Vol. XXI No. 8 By  Theerarak Suthathiwong

Three taxicab employees pushing a broken-down vehicle to start it gave up and ran after the cab burst into flames.

No one was hurt in the accident on North Road near the Dolphin Roundabout early Feb. 4. Once they arrived, it took firefighters about 15 minutes to quell the flames.

The LPG-driven Toyota Corona had broken down near Toscano Co. and taxi company employees were trying to get the car to start when flames sprouted from under the hood. The driver and two pushers fled, fearing the LPG tank would explode. It didn’t.
