Daily News said that the fire – likely caused by hot weather conditions – had started on Monday evening near the area surrounding Wat Samor Prong. 

By 8pm last night Prajuab Khirikhan chief Phallop Singseni was calling an emergency and demanding decisive action from the Hua Hin district chief and the Hua Hin mayor.

Daily News said that the fire was now largely under control with no threat to the houses. 

Firefighters from the Klai Kangwon palace had joined other crews in battling the blaze. 

No one has been reported injured in the blaze.
