An elderly couple and a woman were safely rescued after they became trapped in a burning three-story townhouse in a housing estate in Bangkok’s Lat Phrao district late last night (Thursday).
Fire fighters and EMTs rushed to the Amornphand housing estate, in Soi 84 off Chokchai 4 Road, when they were alerted to a fire in one of the townhouses.
Upon arriving at the scene, they saw three people on the second floor trying to escape via the balcony, but they were prevented from doing so by an iron grille. The front door was also locked.
Emergency workers were, however, able to cut through the grille and pulled all three of them to safety.
The three reportedly told Chok Chai police that they were sleeping when the fire started and that they did not know where the fire began.
