Some more images from Mae Hong son & the fire - it wasn't just the Crossroads that went up in smoke.
There were several businesses. Fortunately there was no loss of life.
What is left of Crossroads = nothing. All gone.
Mu's bike the ER6
This is too sad. It feels & looks like Mae Hong Son has had its heart ripped out.
More news to come when I can get some...what will Mu do to recover?
He already has the Crossroads House so may just base himself there. Google Maps
The Crossroads Pub was on friendship lease arrangement Mu had with the owner - never to modify the building, but look after it as part of Mae Hong Son's heritage.
What happens to that site will be up to the owner.
Fire destroys iconic wooden building in Mae Hong Son
A big fire destroyed an iconic building at the centre of Mae Hong Son province, including the house of a Phalang Pracharat Party member of Parliament.
The blaze started at around 2.30am on Friday (April 17) at Crossroad bar, a 70-year-old building made of wood and located in the city centre near Methi Hotel.
The fire spread quickly to four neighbouring buildings, including the house of the MP.The fire engine sent by Mae Hong Son Municipality could not control the flames so they called for help from neighbouring sub-districts to bring more fire engines.
Governor Suwaphong Kitiphatphibun later visited the scene to check the situation. He said because the fire had started in the heart of the town, the damage was serious.It was 4.20am before the fire was put out. Estimation of total damage and probe into the cause of the fire is underway.
