Fire destroyed the Laser Pub, a Thai-oriented Pattaya club in Soi Yensabai closed since March.
Firefighters from six trucks battled the late morning Nov. 3 blaze for about an hour before getting the fire under control. No one was injured but damage was estimated at 6 million baht.
Owner Atitaya Atachi, 35, said there was no power or water going to the building, removing the usual excuse for a mysterious blaze.
She said crews had been inside the South Pattaya disco every day to prepare for an eventual reopening. The fire is the second blaze to destroy a closed Pattaya club in the past two months.
