'Go save yourself', cop tells reporter as fire breaks out in KL mall (updated)

PETALING JAYA: Visitors to a popular mall in Kuala Lumpur were asked to evacuate the building Saturday evening after a fire broke out at one of its shoplots.
According to The Star reporter, ASHLEY TANG, who was present at the scene, emergency sirens rang out at about 7.15pm, calling for mall-goers to be evacuated immediately.
An unnamed policeman, refused to divulge further details when asked at the scene.
"I have no time for reporters right now. Go save yourself," he said.
The fire is believed to have started near a convenience store located at the lower ground level of the building.
A few shoplots began shuttering soon after the announcement.
No casualties were reported at the time of writing, but a man was spotted in an ambulance outside the building using a breathing mask. It is unknown if this was linked to the fire.
Netizens also took the opportunity to share footage of the evacuation on Twitter and Facebook.
At 8.05pm, another announcement rang out, saying that the situation was under control.
Shops began reopening shortly after.
A similar incident occurred at the same mall on May 30, when a fax machine in a shoplot caught fire.
