CentralWorld said in statements posted to its social media accounts that the fire broke out at around 5:40 p.m. It said it immediately began evacuating people from the building and that firefighters brought the blaze under control within half an hour.

The fire broke out during Bangkok's evening rush hour. Sirens from emergency vehicles wailed as they tried to make their way through the congested city's gridlocked traffic.

CentralWorld sits at a major intersection surrounded by shopping complexes, shrines and high-rise hotels popular with foreign tourists. It's near the main junction for Bangkok's elevated train lines, as well as the Erawan Shrine, which was the site of a deadly bombing in 2015.

The mall typically would have been busy with shoppers as well as diners headed to the many restaurants inside.

CentralWorld was among several Bangkok buildings set on fire by arsonists during mass anti-government protests in 2010.

The CentralWorld mall is part of one of Thailand's best-known chains of shopping centers controlled by the Central Pattana property development company, which operates retail complexes across Bangkok and other parts of Thailand. It in turn is a division of the family-owned Central Group holding company.
