SUBANG JAYA: A scuffle between two rival groups triggered an all-out riot at the site of the Sri Mariamman temple at USJ 25, Putra Heights here, early today.
Up to 18 vehicles in the vicinity were set alight by dozens of brawlers in the 2am incident.
A Selangor Fire and Rescue spokesperson said they received an emergency call on the disturbance at 4.38am, and six personnel from the Subang Jaya station were deployed in one fire engine to the scene.
“When we arrived at the location, we noticed two vehicles ablaze on the side of the road.
“We attempted to douse the flames, but were prevented from doing so by the rioters. (So) we decided to await further instructions from the police, who were already at the scene,” he said when contacted today.
He added that of the 18 vehicles set on fire, two were cars parked by the side of the road, 16 were cars parked at the temple, and two were motorcycles.
“No one was injured in the incident,” he said.
