A massive fire engulfed Bintang Supermarket in Seminyak earlier today, along with a number of stores and kiosks located in the same area.

According to reports, the fire started at around 3am from the back of Bintang Supermarket. It soon spread to other stores nearby, and firemen battled with the blaze until about 5am.

“It was quite difficult as everything was locked and we were late to the scene, so the fire grew really big. The roof was perforated so we shot the water from above, but if we were able to open the doors from the beginning we might have been able to control the fire,” I Wayan Wirya, fire department chief in Badung regency, told Tribun.

Bintang Supermarket is a popular supermarket chain in Bali, with locations in Ubud and Seminyak. 

Videos of the terrible fire made its rounds on social media this morning, showing the extent of the situation earlier as well as the aftermath, which reportedly affected about a 3,400 square meter area.
