World Trade Center Bangkok “Central World Mall” Burns

Below you will find several videos of a huge fire in Bangkok, Thailand. CentralWorld, which was originally named World Trade Center Bangkok, was torched last night. I will post more on this later as more video and photos are available. I was not able to find video with firefighters in action yet.

According to Wikipedia:

CentralWorld (Thai: เซ็นทรัลเวิลด์) was a shopping plaza and complex in Bangkok, Thailand[1]. It was the second largest shopping complex in Southeast Asia, after SM City North EDSA of the Philippines. The complex, which included a hotel and office tower, was owned by Central Pattana. In 2006, after three years of design and renovation, CentralWorld was expanded to 550,000 square metres of shopping mall and 1,024,000 square metres of complex, topping its nearby rival Siam Paragon in terms of size. On May 19, 2010, CentralWorld was damaged by fire by rioters in the aftermath of a military operation against anti-government protesters known as Red Shirts. (link)
