BANGKOK — A brush fire near Rama IX Road sent smoke billowing over Bangkok on Monday afternoon.
The large plume of smoke visible over the city was caused by a patch of brush which caught fire near the intersection of Phet Phra Ram and Rama IX roads next to a gas station. Huai Khwang district police said the fire has been extinguished.
Firefighters were dispatched from Bang Kapi and extinguished the blaze.
Update: Location of fire updated to reflect it was near Phet Phra Ram Road and not CentralPlaza Grand Rama IX.
