At least 12 fires broke out at private businesses in Yala, Songkhla and Pattani provinces early Friday, causing no casualties but raising suspicion of arson by militants.
The first blaze was reported to Yala’s Muang police station about 3am, after a fire broke out at Teck Bee Hang Co in tambon Thasarb of Muang district. Police and fire fighters went to the factory, where they found the blaze had originated in a warehouse storing rubber blocks, behind the main factory. Five fire trucks were called in, and it took almost three hours to control the fire.
The second case was reported at 3.15am at the same police station, reporting a fire at the base of a mobile phone signal pole on Road 409, also in tambon Thasarb.
