A small fire broke out at Terminal 21 shopping complex on Sukhumvit Soi 21 in Bangkok shortly before noon on Tuesday. It was quickly put out, causing minimal damage and no injuries.
The fire occurred at Piri Piri Flaming Chicken restaurant on the fourth floor of the 7-storey building.
An exhaust hood reportedly caught fire, which spread to others. Smoke also filled the fourth and fifth floors, causing the mall's security staff to evacuate people.
They managed to extinguish the flames before fire engines reached the building.
The damaged area was reportedly two square metres.
Terminal 21 announced later on its Facebook it would resume operation at 5pm.
