Patcharin Thaenthon, the group's leader, revealed that the fire's fury stopped them from accessing the scene and that a rescue squad was dispatched from Thailand across the border to assist in putting it out.
At 8.30 am local time, 53 individuals were reported to have been saved when the fire was still burning.
