Firefighters, using a chainsaw, cleared a fallen tree – measuring 10 metres long and 11 metres wide – blocking parts of the road along Jalan Tarap Bau, Kampong Setia ‘B’ on Sunday. No injuries were reported.

Four firefighters from Sungai Kebun Fire Station led by ABK 579 Yusof bin Haji Ahmad responded to the incident after a report was received at 5.38pm, according to the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD).

The FRD reminded the public to be alert of falling trees, especially during unpredictable weather; avoid planting trees close to houses; avoid parking vehicles close to trees; and trim the branches of their trees. The public can contact 995 during an emergency.
