In recent news, a fire has broken out on a billboard located near TM PJ Central on the Federal Highway. Maintenance personnel are seen trapped on the billboard. According to Kosmo, the fire took place at 1.25pm today (31st May) near the Jalan Gasing exit.

According to Sinar Daily, the fire started out of nowhere and spread fast, making parts of the billboard break off and fall onto the highway. This caused major traffic jams as drivers had to weave through the debris on the lanes.

The smoke caused many drivers to slow down or pull over

The smoke could reportedly be seen from several kilometers away and was seen pouring from the burning billboard, while debris fell onto the road below.

One of the the victims there said the electronic billboard short-circuited at the bottom, which caused the fire to spread up. Out of the 9 victims, one suffered an arm injury and another suffered minor burns.
