According to NST, loud bangs were heard by eyewitnesses at the shopping mall, which shocked the people inside. This sparked a major evacuation by shoppers and workers alike as they ran out of the mall. Based on a video posted by Bernama, it is believed that the incident happened at one of the retail shops inside, which was undergoing renovations at that time.

The explosion affected several other retail outlets nearby and caused damage to their shops as well. So far, there have been at least 18 people who were injured by the incident and there are a few others who are reportedly still trapped inside the building.  The rescue team is still trying to determine whether there is anyone else inside but sadly, they have announced that there are three male bodies so far, according to Bernama.

Lots of rubble and debris can be seen from the videos and photos on social media. The cause of the explosion is not known but preliminary investigations by the Sarawak Fire and Rescue Department states that it could have been caused by a gas explosion, Bernama Radio reported.
