Kandawgyi Palace Hotel fire Caused by Old Wires

Old wires caused the October 19 fire at the internationally renowned Kandawgyi Palace Hotel, resulting in a loss in excess of Ks37,000 million, according to an officer from Yangon East District Police.

A joint team of officials from the departments of fire services, police, general administration, and electrical inspection joined with the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism to inspect the gutted hotel.

Some 70 fire engines were called the morning of October 19 to fight the inferno, which killed two foreigners and injured officer Kyaw Zwar Lin of the Myanmar Fire Services.

In 1993, Biayoke Hotel Group oversaw the Kandawgyi Palace Hotel. At the end of 2009, the Htoo Group of Companies owned by Tay Za took over the hotel. The four-star hotel was one of the grand old hotels in Yangon after the Strand Hotel on Strand Road.
