At least five houses were damaged due to a fire this morning in Battambang city’s Chamkar Samraong district.

According to provincial authorities, three houses were destroyed and two others were slightly damaged by the fire at 10am this morning. 

There were no injuries or deaths as the houses were unoccupied because the residents had been selling fish since the early morning. A neighbour said they heard a gas explosion before the fire. 

However, authorities are still investigating the cause the fire and the total cost of the damages. 

Provincial fire trucks arrived to extinguish the flames before they could spread to neighbouring houses.
