Cambodia’s Grand Diamond Casino Catches Fire During Demolition

The demolition of the Grand Diamond City Hotel & Casino in Poipet, Cambodia, continues following the deadly fire in December. Even now, a month later, the property sustains its eerie attack on the city, with another fire breaking out as crews were tearing it down.

In the uncontrollable inferno in December, when everyone should have been celebrating the holidays, at least 28 people lost their lives. Some of the victims, trapped in the chaos with no way to escape, still haven’t been identified.

Almost immediately following the disaster, construction crews moved in to begin dismantling the unsafe structures. Three weeks later, their work continues. But the buildings are offering a reminder that they still pose a threat.
