KUCHING, Jan 1: A house at Taman Seng Goon Kuching was 60 per cent destroyed by fire on Tuesday night.

The incident happened around 8pm, where one of the tenants in the house spotted smoke rising from the house.

Fire and Rescue (Bomba) department said that the tenant was alone in the house when she saw the house lights going on and off. When she opened the house door, she was shocked to see fire engulfing some parts of the house.

She contacted the other tenants and a car that belonged to one of the tenants managed to be saved from the fire. One other tenant was not so lucky as his motorcycle had caught fire.


Bomba reached the scene not long after and managed to put out the fire. No one was injured in the incident.

Bomba is investigating the cause of the fire. —DayakDaily
