Fire erupts at compound of Myanmar embassy in Bangkok

Just as soon as Myanmar starts allowing international aid workers in, this happens:
The visa section of the embassy is located in the building that caught fire. In the last three weeks, aid workers and others often crowded into the section trying to obtain hard-to-get visas to isolationist Myanmar to help victims of a devastating cyclone. - AP
Why did only the visa section of the embassy catch on fire for no reason? Last Friday Myanmar decided to open their borders to international aid workers, the following business day the door is re-shut by a mysterious fire. Smells fishy!
