A fire ripped through part of the famed Chatuchak Weekend Market in the Thai capital of Bangkok early Tuesday, killing hundreds of caged animals, including dogs, cats, birds, fishes and snakes, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration said.

The fire broke out at around 4 a.m. local time and was extinguished around 25 minutes later, Chayakorn Kumchoke, an assistant to the administration’s spokesman, said in a phone interview Tuesday. He said that around 800 animals were killed, all of them marketed as pets.
