Police claim fire at Ayutthaya chemical storage facility was arson

Written by World Events

Scientific Crime Detection Division (SCDD) police have found several pieces of evidence which suggest that the fire at a chemical storage facility, in the Phachi district of Ayutthaya province four days ago, was an act of arson.

After the fire at the warehouse, which stores seized chemicals, police uncovered a number of one gallon containers and some bottles containing liquid chemicals at warehouses 1 and 2.

They returned to the site to search warehouse 3 and found several more items suspected to have been used in the arson attack, such as cherry bombs, petrol containers, degraded electrical wires and a large bag containing sawdust.

The officers did not search the two remaining warehouses because of the presence of chemical waste and the strong chemical odour there. They did, however, find a plastic box behind warehouse 5 containing some items suspected to have been used in the arson.

During the search yesterday, sparks were detected by a huge container, forcing the officers to fill the container with sand for safety.
