Fire Erupts at Massive Marijuana Plantation Warehouse in Chachoengsao, No Injuries Reported


At 10:00 AM, on May 9th, 2024, Mueang Chachoengsao police officers received a fire incident report at a massive private marijuana plantation warehouse in Mueang Chachoengsao, Chachoengsao.

Mueang Chachoengsao police and relevant agencies were dispatched to the reported warehouse where four adjacent private warehouses were in an open area. The marijuana plantation and marijuana storage warehouse was where the fire first started.

The Mueang Chachoengsao firefighters diligently sprayed water on the violent flames to prevent it from spreading to three other adjacent storage warehouses.

The firefighters were able to put the fire under control after about 50 minutes. No injuries or casualties were reported from the incident, according to the police.

Mr. Patthorn Sitthikarn, the Mayor of the Khlong Luang Phaeng Subdistrict Administrative Organization, reportedly said that the fire might have occurred from an electrical short circuit and that the marijuana warehouse’s wall was covered with flammable materials.

Initially, the Mueang Chachoengsao forensic and relevant officials would investigate the warehouses to determine the exact cause of the fire incident.

Interestingly, this comes the same week that the Thai Prime Minister has caused many polarizing opinions stating firmly that he wants to recriminalize marijuana.
