SHAH ALAM: A company manufacturing air filters at Section 15, Jalan Pengapit, Shah Alam suffered losses estimated to be in the region of RM1 million when 80 percent of its premises were damaged by a fire that started at 1.20pm here today.
There were no casualties reported since 29 workers who were in the factory when the fire started, managed to escape while a majority of others had gone for the Friday prayers.
Six fire engines with 37 fire fighters from Section 15 here, Kota Anggerik in Subang Jaya and Port Klang, took 45 minutes to bring the fire under control and prevent it from spreading to other premises.
"We also managed to prevent the fire from spreading to the back portion of the factory where chemicals were stored," Section 15, Fire and Rescue Department Chief Mohd Hisham Sidik told reporters here today.
A worker from the factory, Anney Safuan, 32, said he heard someone shouting 'fire, fire' and ran out of the building.
"I heard shouts of fire and saw thick smoke billowing from the mid-section of the factory," said Anney.
Winzho Moy, 25, a worker from Myanmar ran out bare-footed after realising that the factory was engulfed by fire while workers who had returned from prayers were seen rushing into the compound in an effort to safe their cars and motorcycles that were parked inside. - Bernama
