Those who are familiar with the lush greenery and serene landscape of Semenyih hotspot Broga Hill will be disappointed to know that the popular hiking destination was hit by a forest fire on Monday.
According to Harian Metro, assistant director of operations for the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department Mohd Sani Harul confirmed the matter, saying that his officers received an emergency call about the fire at 4.44pm yesterday.
He added that his department sent down two teams from the Semenyih and Kajang fire stations, totalling 11 crew members and one officer.
The fire was finally put out late last night, after it had already laid waste to much of the vegetation covering the hill.
The reason of the fire was still on investigation.
Broga Hill’s thick bushes and beautiful surroundings made a perfect backdrop for photo shoots and selfies alike.
Even local astronaut, Datuk Dr. Syeikh Muzaffar snapped his pre-wedding photos there.
Though the news did sunk the hearts of many, bear in mind that nature truly has a way in restoring itself. Get well soon, Broga!-MYNEWSHUB.CC
