Dramatic footage captured the moment a raging fire ripped through dozens of antique wooden homes in Bangkok, Thailand, this morning. Flames started just before sunrise in the Bang Yai district inside a small walled community with traditional style Asian homes which date back to the 19th century. The fire spread quickly as rescue crews battled to contain the blaze. Ten fire engines spent almost an hour tackling the inferno. Sixteen homes were ravaged in the fire in the Wat Tha Phra sub-district. All the residents escaped serious injury but several people were treated for smoke inhalation. Police and fire crews are now investigating the cause of the fire.
