A fire which started in a large garbage dump in Samut Prakan province yesterday continued to burn fiercely on Monday and the area has been declared a disaster zone. 

The burning garbage dump covers more than 100 rai in tambon Praeksa in Muang district of Samut  Prakan. 

Provincial governor Kanit Iamrahong said he called a meeting of officials in tambon Praeksa yesterday and declared the site a disaster zone to keep people out of the area and make it easier for emergency services  to battle the fire.
