In Cambodia, gambling has grown into a tragedy.
Flames erupted at the Golden Casino late that night, according to Major General At Khem, Chief of Police for Banteay Minchi Province. Fire broke out in the casino elevator and quickly spread from the 4th to the 13th floor. It took the firefighters about an hour to extinguish the flames. According to preliminary information, the cause of the fire was a malfunction in the electrical wiring.
“Nobody died in the fire. However, six people were injured as a result of suffocation when they were trapped in an elevator, ”the chief of police said. He added that the victims had no physical injuries and the police sent them to the nearest hospital. The rest of the casino visitors were successfully evacuated through the emergency exit.
The resort is located in a border town in the northwest of Cambodia. It serves many players from neighboring Thailand where casino gambling is illegal.
Earlier we wrote about the fire in the American casino Tropicana. Then the reason was a laboratory for the production of amphetamine, which the criminals equipped right in the room of the hotel-casino.
