The Star reported that the deceased consisted of pupils and teachers, and that 25 people have been confirmed dead. The authorities are still in the process of determining the cause of fire and the bodies of the deceased have been transported to the KL Hospital.

This shocking incident has garnered nationwide attention. Many have expressed their surprise and condolences while some urged the authorities to look into all the tahfiz schools, especially those that are not registered, as many have been involved in a blaze of late.

One netizen shared his experience of fixing the electrical wiring system at one of the tahfiz schools in Puchong.
