An apparently-crazed woman allegedly set fire to her house in Pathum Thani and held herself a hostage with a knife on Friday morning.

 

The fire destroyed the house and a car and burned a pet dog in its cage to death.

 

Police were alerted of the fire at 10am at a house in Phassorn 4 housing estate in Pathum Thani’s Thanyaburi district.

 

When three five engines arrived at the scene, firefighters were unable enter the house to put out the fire immediately because the woman, Pranee Promchaidam 66, held herself hostage with a knife.

 

It took time for the police to apprehend and later charge the woman, but by then it was too late for the firefighters to save the home.

 

Neighbours said the woman became somehow crazed and was shouting before setting her house on fire.
