A kitchen fire swept through the Spicy Treat Indian restaurant on Second Road Soi 16 in South Pattaya.

Fire crews had to run their hoses through an adjacent 7-Eleven store and up to the roof of a building opposite the burning building to hit the upper stories of the three-story shophouse.

South Pattaya Fire Chief Surachat Kerdpard said it’s believed an electrical short in the kitchen of the long-running eatery was responsible for the fire, which then spread through the entire building causing massive damage.
