Cambodia Casino Caught Fire
Cambodia is a country that’s known in the casino industry as there are several casino fans living there. They usually visit a land-based casino to enjoy their favorite games as they have been doing so for years. One such casino exists in the town of Poipet.
Recently, a tragedy befell a border casino in Poipet. This casino is frequented by Thai and Cambodian nationals since gaming is illegal in Thailand. The casino caught fire and people were injured before they made it out. Luckily the police and fire brigade made it in time to get the situation under control.
The Situation Is Under Control
The border casino was a popular one with Cambodian and Thai casino fans. Cambodians visited it frequently and so did Thai people that wanted to play a casino game or two. But the casino suddenly caught fire and some people managed to make it out on time.
Around 50 of them were trapped inside. The fire spread quickly and it engulfed the entire complex. At least 10 have succumbed to their injuries, but the authorities were notified. So, the fire brigade and police worked in unison to get the situation under control.
The fire brigade has been in control of the situation and it has stopped the fire from spreading. Moreover, the fire was slowly being brought down as heaps of firemen were working hard to extinguish it and save as many people as they can.
The injured have been evacuated and transported to the nearest hospitals. Another thing that’s unclear is how the fire started, but at this moment it’s important to extinguish the fire completely and help the victims. Once the fire is out an investigation can take place to determine the cause of the fire.
Faulty equipment can be the cause, but there are also other reasons. Either way, the most important thing is that the injured have been given the care they need. It’s sad that certain people lost their lives in such a tragedy.
An investigation has started to determine what caused the fire to prevent such a tragedy from happening again. The casino will suffer from this kind of event, but not as much as the victim’s families. Tragedies like this have happened before and they have always struck the families hardest.
Many will mourn the victims that have passed away and will remember this day. The injured will recover and live on. It’s also fortunate that more people didn’t lose their lives or got injured. And it’s truly devastating that some people will never get to see some members of the family. This day will be remembered by all fans and family members mourning the ones that succumbed to their injuries.
