SHAH ALAM – Twenty three people from one family including six children were made homeless after their half-brick house near Sungai Jati roundabout in Kampung Jawa, Klang near here was destroyed in a fire today.
Seri Andalas Fire and Rescue station chief, Assistant Superintendent A. Romzi Abu said the station received a call on the incident at 12.42pm and brought the blaze under control at 1.33pm.

Apart from that, he said investigations also found the class B house was believed to be built on private land and did not have any fire safety features. – BERNAMA
