The three days of Khmer New Year have seen more than 10 fires break.  They consumed eight houses, a timber warehouses, a stall, and a three hectare growth of eucalyptus trees.  Only one person was injured.

The National Police’s Fire Department report states the causes of the fires were electrical malfunction, a gas explosion, and home owners torching their own houses. It also states that 2019 is neither better nor worse than 2018 in respect to Khmer New Year conflagrations.
