Aftermath of massive fire in Thailand tourist spot

Recovery efforts continue at Koh Phi Phi after a blaze swept through the Thai island on February 6, injuring tourists and destroying multiple buildings.

The aftermath footage, captured on February 9 by French tourist Sylvain Bohrer, shows residents repairing their properties amid chaotic scenes of burnt out dwellings and charred rubble.

Local media reported that three Thais and six foreign tourists were injured when the blaze raged through shops, bungalows and a small hotel on Phi Phi Island.

At least 25 buildings were damaged.

The cause of fire was a leak from a cooking gas tank in the restaurant of the October Hostel, followed by an explosion that was caused by a spark, according to local media.
