Fire briefly closes provincial Thai airport

BANGKOK (Reuters) - A domestic airport in Thailand’s northeast closed temporarily on Friday after an electrical short-circuit sparked a fire, the airport authority said.

Khon Kaen airport serves flights arriving from the capital Bangkok and the city of Chiang Mai in the north - a popular tourist destination.

Normal services resumed in the afternoon.
