Fire destroys plastic factory in Tawau


TAWAU: A plastic factory in Taman Anson, Jalan Kuhara, near here, was destroyed in a fire late last evening.


Tawau Fire and Rescue chief Rudy Fredzek said two fire engines and 34 personnel managed to prevent the fire, which started at 6.50 pm, from spreading to the neighbouring premises within half an hour.    
"When we arrived at the scene, the fire was blazing and fanned by strong winds. We were hampered by the locked building, multiple partitions and combustible plastic products inside," he said in a statement here today.  
A hardware factory and Insolvency Department store next door were saved from the fire, he added. 
The cause of the fire and estimated losses were still under investigation, he said. --BERNAMA
