Faulty wiring strikes yet again as help too late

Faulty wiring strikes yet again as help too late

The race to fight a Kandal province fire was, unfortunately, chalked up as a loss when a blaze took out two houses and a car in Ang Snuol district on Monday.

Villagers say they saw smoke coming out of one house before the flames erupted onto the place next door and a car out front.

A fire truck came to the scene but was too late to stop any of the damage. Thankfully, no one was injured and officers suspect faulty wiring may be to blame.
