Kanok Wan is accused of pouring petrol on the motorbike before setting it on fire in a school car park in Bangkok on Monday (21 June).

The 36-year-old allegedly set fire to the motorcycle because she wanted to take revenge on her ex for refusing to get back with her.

No one was hurt in the incident, but six other motorcycles parked nearby were also engulfed in flames before fire rescuers arrived to put the blaze out.

Thonglor police officer Mongkut Thanomjai said: "We were informed of the fire incident on the third floor of the parking building inside Srinakharinwirot University Prasarnmit Demonstration School.

"The building was connected to the elementary level wing of the school but no one was hurt because the students were on an online class arrangement due to the pandemic."

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze within 10 minutes, which prevented it from spreading into other parts of the building.

Upon checking the CCTV, officers identified the woman as the ex-girlfriend of a school employee.

She was arrested on Wednesday (23 June) in her home after a warrant was issued by the Bangkok South Criminal Court the day before.

Officer Mongkut added that the woman reportedly bought the one million baht (£22,450/$31,192) Triumph motorcycle for her ex as a gift while they were still together.

He said: "She wanted to take revenge on the school officer by burning the motorcycle which was a gift for him.

"The cause was emotional, she was angry."

The woman is being questioned on charges of arson and the investigation is ongoing.

Meanwhile, in the US, a shop employee was filmed walking away from a blaze after a group of teenagers set alight a fireworks display.

Footage captured in a Hy-Vee grocery store in Eagan, Minnesota, earlier this week showed the employee as he filmed the chaotic scenes before calmly walking away.

Emergency services were called to the scene to find the store filled with smoke, and Eagan Police Department spokesman Aaron Machtemes confirmed firefighters put out the flames and no one was injured.

Three teenage boys were arrested and released, police said. The boys, aged 14, 15 and 16, haven't been charged.

The clip of the blaze went viral and Twitter users empathised with the store worker.

One person wrote: "I can guarantee you that whatever that employee was being paid, it was not worth putting that fire out."

Another - who had been in a similar situation - added: "I love how this dude just walks away. Reminds me of when I worked at Media Play and the roof collapsed and started leaking. Just walked away like: 'Yep, I ain't paid to deal with this.' I quit the next day anyways."
