Mumong vehicle fire contained in 10 minutes

A team of Fire and Rescue Department (FRD)  scrambled to put out a vehicle fire at the Mumong Post Office parking lot, after a distress call was received minutes before noon yesterday.

Nine firefighters from the Kuala Belait Fire Station, led by Assistant Station Officer Hussin bin Harun, arrived to find a thick cloud of smoke billowing from the flame-engulfed white van. In 10 minutes, the fire was put out. The driver escaped unscathed, and investigations are under way to determine the cause of the fire.
