Deadly blaze in Bangkok high-rise

One person has died and five others have been injured after a fire broke out in a Bangkok high-rise.

The Bangkok Post reports the blaze started on the eighth-floor of the 10-storey building at around 10:30am (local time).

It was brought under control around two hours later.

Cracks have appeared on the building's exterior and authorities have declared the area a "danger zone", with fears the building could collapse.
