Twenty fire trucks were used to extinguish the blaze, said Pol Lt Col Kriangkrai Saengyot, investigation chief at Pratunam Chulalongkorn police station.
The fire engulfed two three-storey shophouses at the corner of the block before spreading to other units. Eleven units were damaged and four cars parked in the area had been damaged before the fire was put out.
Sunthon Chokthana-anan, 53, a community committee member, said the fire broke out at the corner shophouse. When he arrived, nobody was inside and someone had already alerted police and firemen.
Pol Lt Col Kriangkrai said the owner of Champ Beauty Center had rented those buildings to keep products.
The owner briefly spoke to police and would give details later, added the officer.
The cause of the fire was being investigated.
