A fire destroyed part of the provincial residence of Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni, near a famous temple complex, officials said Monday. No injuries have been reported.
The fire broke out Sunday night in the northwestern city of Siem Reap, damaging the roof of one of the smaller buildings in the complex. The 69-year-old monarch is currently in Beijing for routine medical check-ups.
Information Minister Khieu Kanharith said no one was reported injured. On Monday, the Royal Palace Ministry blamed an electrical fault.

A video from the state news agency AKP showed the intensity of the fire before emergency crews brought it under control, apparently preventing serious damage to the main residential building.
The large villa is the official home of the King when he is in Siem Reap. The main residence of King Sihamoni is a palace within a gated compound in the capital, Phnom Penh.
Siem Reap is famous for the centuries-old temple complex of Angkor Wat, a historical site that is one of the main tourist attractions in the country.
