TAWAU (Bernama) – Sabah Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Tawfiq Abu Bakar Titingan has advised fire victims in Kampung Saadani here not to rebuild their homes too close to each other.
He said the close proximity of these houses could cause fire to spread quickly.
“I hope the residents who were affected by the fire will not build houses too close to each other as was the case before,” he told reporters after a ceremony to present donations to the fire victims yesterday.
At the ceremony, 29 families who were victims of the fire in Kampung Saadani Batu 2 Jalan Apas received cash donations.
In the incident at 3pm on Jan 23, a total of 25 homes were destroyed by fire.a
