BANGKOK: A massive explosion in a factory on the outskirts of Bangkok Early Monday, it shook an airport terminal that serves the Thai capital, prompting the evacuation of residents of the area.
The fire broke out early in the morning at a foam and plastic pallet manufacturing factory in a southeastern part of Bangkok, near Suvarnabhumi airport.
The photos showed nearby houses with smashed windows and debris on the streets.
Firefighters were still working to contain the blaze hours later, and authorities ordered an evacuation of the area amid fears that thousands of liters (gallons) of leaking chemicals could cause more explosions.
