30 rendered homeless in a fire

THIRTY people lost their homes in a fire that razed 10 terraced residential units in Kg Rimba yesterday. No people were reported injured, though several were lucky to escape with their lives.

An eyewitness who lives nearby said the fire quickly consumed the entire structure, which was made entirely of wood with zinc roofing.

One of the residents who lived in the building said that he and the rest of the workers who live in the homes were on duty in the nearby quarry building and didn't realise that the fire was gutting their homes until they stepped outside from work.

"I have no idea how the fire started. I'm still in shock. By the time we all got out and saw the fire, there was nothing we could do but let the authorities take care of it. Luckily, my wife and child are safe," he said.

"Elizabeth", a wife of one of the workers, was lucky to escape the inferno. "I was having an afternoon nap and didn't even realise that the building was on fire.

"I woke up to the sound of someone yelling, 'Get out!' and when I woke up, I felt the heat and smoke, looked out the window and saw my neighbour's house at the end on fire," she said in tears.

On realising the iminent danger, she rushed to grab her child and quickly gather her important belongings and made it out to safety.

"Everything else has been destroyed by the fire; our laundry that was hung out to dry and my child's school uniform. The only thing I could save was my passport," she said.

In addition to engulfing all furniture and appliances in the homes, the fire destroyed four vehicles parked outside.

The fire began around 3pm near a quarry owned by SKS Sdn Bhd in Simpang 134, Kg Rimba, and took four fire engines from Berakas Fire Station to extinguish the blaze.

The firemen arrived at the scene 10 minutes after receiving the emergency call, bringing the fire under control within minutes.

The Fire and Rescue Department has yet to determine the cause of the blaze.

good day bros. I'm actually into shoes and I have been digging as far as something that meticulous brand. The prices seeking the velcros were about 190 bucks on every page. But for all I base this location selling them for the benefit of half price. I absolutely like those [url=]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will probably buy them. what is your opinion?
