The huge blaze that took place yesterday noon at Kampong Ayer
24 houses being affected. Let’s give a helping hand
According to the reported news in Borneo Bulletin, 24 houses were affected by the fire blaze as a massive fire broke out at Kampong Lorong Dalam. Pictures and videos were being circulated through social media. A total of 13 houses in Kampong Lorong Dalam and 11 houses from Kampong Pandai Besi were affected due to the strong winds yesterday which escalated the fire.
The good news is that there were no casualties. It was good to see Pehin Orang Kaya Seri Kerna Dato Seri Setia (Dr) Haji Awang Abu Bakar bin Haji Apong, the Minister of Culture, Youth and Sports, to assess the situation.
The Fire and Rescue team had difficulty in accessing the fire affected area due to the low tide at that time. They had to use a long hose and the strong winds made the situation difficult. With the combined efforts of Pengkalan Batu Fire Station, Berakas Fire Station and Beribi Fire Station, they managed the contain the situation within two hours.
The ministry will help the victim relocate to suitable places where they will be provided with early emergency assistance in the form of food and sleeping equipment. Some of the identified temporary places for the fire victims are Sg Kebun Menjalin Sports Complex, Youth Centre in Bandar and the Sports Village.
Other agencies involved in helping out were Community Development Department (JAPEM) and the Brunei-Muara Office.
