WhatsApp-Image-201607026

Five houses were damaged during a fire at Lorong L4 (Bahagia) in Kampung Pandan Dalam this afternoon.

One house was wiped out by the fire, while two others were badly damaged but fortunately, no casualties were reported.

The owners of the house which was completely destroyed were away when the fire started.

The fire started at around 3:20 PM at a house on the left of the house which was fully burnt down, before the fire rapidly spread to the other houses as the houses are built very close to one another.

Strong wind and narrow roads around the area makes it harder for the firefighters to stop the fire, but it was settled at around 4:20 PM.

I witnessed the incident and it was really sad the see such a tragic incident.

Below are the pictures of the incident captured by my father:

On Friday 11th March 2011, a 8.9 magnitude earthquake and a huge tsunami hit northeast coast Japan.

At least 1,300 people were killed in the disaster.

A lot of people were hurt.

This s the strongest earthquake ever recorded in Japan and the 5th in the world.

Houses, buildings, vehicles, roads, farms and others were swept by the tsunami.

The disasters also caused fire and floods.

I am sad and sorry for the victims and their families.

A Fire Destroyed 19 Hectares Of Forest In Bukit Kecil

More than 19 hectares of forest in Bukit Kecil, Kuala Terengganu were destroyed by fire.

Kuala Terengganu is my parent’s hometown.

I knew about the news from BERBAMA because we live in Kuala Lumpur.

This is a disaster.

The disaster started at about 2pm yesterday evening.

More than 100 firemen took more than 24 hours to control the fire.

Bukit Kecil is close to Bukit Pak Apil and not very far from my mother’s house in Bukit Besar.

I wonder if we can see the fire from my mother’s house.

I am sorry about the fire because it burnt the trees.

And if the trees are gone from the hillside, it may cause a landslide and mudslide.
