A fire broke out in a document storage room at Siam Commercial Bank Park Plaza on Ratchadaphisek Road just after 10pm on Saturday night.

Nation TV reported firefighters arriving on the scene failed to bring the blaze under control for several hours due to the key card system used by the bank preventing entry and access to the 10th floor. The fire could still be seen burning at 12.45am.

The superintendent of Phaholyothin Police Station confirmed there were no important documents stored in the area where the fire broke out. For a short time following the outbreak, the SCB website went offline due to emergency services cutting power to the building for safety reasons but was back in service when backup systems kicked in.

Police reported no injuries or deaths to any bank employees or contract workers in the building, however, one volunteer firefighter died tackling the blaze. The cause of the fire has yet to be established.
