Three lorries burn in Nilai workshop fire

A fire in a workshop located in the Nilai Industrial Estate last night caused three lorries to burn down. 

Mantin Fire and Rescue Station senior fire officer Yusof Jahidin told Bernama that his team received a distress call at 9.04pm, after which a fire engine with a crew of six firefighters was rushed to the scene. 

“We were made to understand that before the firemen arrived at the scene, there were about seven or eight men at the workshop. They tried to extinguish the fire on the three lorries using two fire extinguishers,” he said. 

“Upon arrival at the scene, the fire was seen to have destroyed about 70 per cent of the lorries. The fire was fully extinguished within an hour.”

No casualties were reported following the incident, and the total value of damages was still being investigated.
