The absolute worst time a fire could take place would be when there’s a water shortage.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened in Berek 12, Kelantan, over the end of last week.
The ISU SEMASA VIRAL Twitter page shared how 6 houses had completely burnt down, after a water shortage caused delays in fire fighting.
The admin of the page shared, “A fire broke out in front of my house. The front area of the house was on fire. The incident happened at 9:45am, initially it was only 1 house but in the end, it had spread to the surrounding areas. I called the fire department and they arrived within 15 minutes.”
Though, when the fire department arrived, they came to a realisation that there was no water!
“I wondered how the fire brigade wanted to put out the fire with the lack of water in the Berek 12 area. In the end, my guess was correct, there’s no water. Even in Bomba’s pipes there’s no water,”
“Firefighters had to bring over water trucks to put out the blaze.”
They explained that they themselves have been experiencing the water shortage for quite a while.
“This is what it’s like for us, the people of Kelantan. My own house has been without water for 11 days,”
“All of this is the work of Air Kelantan Official, but that is how the people are ignored. No matter how you complain, they will only answer with ‘there is no water’. This time the houses were on fire. If there was water, many houses could have been saved,” they said.
In the end, 6 houses were completely burnt to a crisp, leaving nothing behind.
“Now, as I am posting this at 11:43am, there are still small fires that cannot be extinguished. Because the water in Bomba’s truck has run out,” they added.
While they are thankful that no one had gotten hurt, or worse, killed, they have to still hope that their water supply is restored.
“Until when do we, the Kelantanese, have to have this water shortage problem? When there is a big fire like this, the people suffer. Fortunately, there were no casualties.”
We can’t even imagine the experience of not having water for 11 days! We genuinely hope that the water supply will quickly be restored for the residents in the area.
