Meanwhile, Pol Col Wuttipong Somjai, Phlu Ta Luang police chief, told the media that the pub- Mountain B, is located on Sukhumvit Road in the Sattahip district and added all victims were believed to be Thai nationals.

An eyewitness said that he heard two explosions near the DJ booth and later, the fire ignited the whole pub due to the soundproofing foam used on the rooftop.
