Blaze guts warehouse and injures three

BUTTERWORTH: Three foreign workers were injured in a fire which razed a warehouse made up of seven adjoining buildings in Jalan Jeti Lama here.
The three Myanmar nationals were asleep in the 60m x 30m warehouse with two of their countrymen when the fire broke out at about 3am yesterday.
“Two of them sustained severe burns while another had minor burns. They were brought to hospital in an ambulance. The other two workers escaped unhurt,” the Fire and Rescue Department said in a statement.
Twenty-five firemen were despatched to fight the blaze. Assisted by voluntary firefighters, they brought the fire under control at 4.02am and extinguished it by 5am.
Various goods kept inside the warehouse went up in smoke. They included furniture and groceries.
The cause of the fire and amount of losses have yet to be ascertained.
