Employee blows up oil warehouse after an alleged argument with boss

In Thailand, an employee allegedly blew up the oil warehouse that she used to work for. According to reports, the idea was triggered as she was angry with her boss. 

The police have reported the name of the 38 years old employee to be Sirisini or Ann Sriya. She has been accused of blowing up the fuel container at Thailand based Prapakorn Oil warehouse. 

The fire caused damage of more than 40 million Thai baht which quickly spread through the compound that used to store thousands of litres of oil tanks.

CCTV footage, allegedly of Ms Sriya, shows a person walking into a warehouse with a piece of paper in their hand before disappearing behind a row of containers on a shelving unit. Glimpses of flames could be seen coming out of two locations behind the containers before the person reappears, still carrying the paper.

According to Major General Chomchawin Purthananon, it was the second time a fire had started at the factory in recent months. “The woman has been working for Prapakorn Oil for nine years,” the MailOnline reported him as saying.”

More than 40 fire engines spent four hours battling the blaze before it was eventually brought under control, according to the MailOnline.
