Fire destroys old Volvo car in Pattaya

The fire started in the engine compartment of the 30-year-old Volvo and practically destroyed it.

An old car met the end of its life after a fire at the Amorn Market in Naklua.
Vendors extinguished the flames that erupted from under the hood in the Volvo in five minutes. No one was hurt.

Owner Apirak Tan, 80, said he drives the car almost every day to the market to do some shopping and he did not know how the fire started while he parked his 30 year-old car outside the market.

Apirak speaks to a Pattaya firefighter while he jots down some information on the palm of his hand, possibly in the hope of getting lucky in the next lottery draw.
