Oh dear, this doesn’t look good. 

The Star reported that at least 30 KTM Bhd employees and their family members were left homeless because their houses have been burnt down due to a massive fire.

According to Pantai fire chief Hamid Daud, the fire department was notified about the incident in Bangsar somewhere around 10.30am today (Monday, 28 January 2019).

He was quoted as saying,

“We dispatched five fire engines and 60 personnel from the Pantai, Hang Tuah, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Sentul and Seputeh Fire Stations to the scene. They arrived at Kuarters KTMB Jalan Lengkok Abdullah, Bangsar, 13 minutes later and began to put out the flames.”
