KUCHING, July 10: A furniture factory located at Siburan caught fire, causing 20 per cent of the whole structure to be destroyed early this morning.

The fire was reported to the Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) at 2.32 am and a team was deployed to the scene.

According to a statement from the State Bomba Operation Centre, the fire started from the cable of a vacuum machine, wooden boards and some of the wooden dust.

After collecting necessary information from the scene, Bomba ended their operation at 3.03 am and returned to their station.-DayakDaily
