Ferris wheel on fire in Bangkok – level 1

This news is from Bangkok. Bangkok is the capital of Thailand. There is a theme park in Bangkok. A cabin on the Ferris wheel gets on fire.

Luckily, nobody is in the cabin. Nobody is injured. People bring 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), Ferris wheel (a big rotating wheel), to be injured (to have problems with the body), investigate (to try to understand why something happened).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
