In a theme park in Bangkok, Thailand, a fire broke out in a passenger cabin of the Ferris wheel. Thankfully, no one was in the cabin at the time and no one was injured in the incident.

The fire broke out after a storm in the city. According to local media, people brought the fire under control within 20 minutes. People are investigating the incident.

Difficult words: theme park (a place with a lot of fun things to do and rides, like Disneyland), break out (to start), Ferris wheel (a big rotating wheel).
