Stray Fireworks Spark Rooftop Fire At Peninsula Hotel

Rooftop Fire At Peninsula Hotel

Just after midnight as revelers were bringing in the New year around Bangkok, a fire broke out on the rooftop of the Peninsula Hotel located on the banks of the Chao Phraya river.

It is believed stray fireworks ignited the roof causing users of social media to panic as they shared photos of what looked like a tragedy in the making and bringing back memories of the Santika Nighclub disaster of 2009.

Fortunately the fire was put out within 15 minutes of being spotted and no injuries were reported.
