Pattaya Restaurant fire in duct work

A bizarre accident occurred at a Restaurant on Walking Street in South Pattaya late on Sunday Night which began with a Kitchen fire and ended with a worker sustaining a broken leg.

The incident occurred at the Lobster Pot Seafood Restaurant just after 11pm. According to one of the cooks, Khun Lodsukon aged 47, a fire began in an extractor vent, which is thought to have been caused by a faulty motor.

A fellow worker, Khun Neung aged 40, jumped on the cooker and tried to look inside the vent after a small fire was extinguished but then lost his footing and fell onto the floor.

He sustained a suspected broken leg which was later confirmed following an X-ray at Hospital. The vent motor has now been replaced and the restaurant are covering all medical bills for Khun Neung.
