A homeowner’s quick thinking saved his Kampong Keramut home in Mukim Telisai from being destroyed by an electrical fire last Sunday.
Responding to a distress call at 8.02pm, a team of six firefighters led by DSO Abdul Aziz from the Bukit Beruang Fire Station were dispatched to the scene. On arriving, they found that the fire had already been put out by the homeowner, Mohammad bin Majid, using a two kg powder extinguisher.
