I understand from talking with other burmese that fire usually break
out right before the time of audit to cover up their (employees)
selling of goods to blackmarket. I understand setting fire is
a standard procedure, belive it or not. The loss is, of course,
the innocent public.
Does anyone want to comment on it?
