A house in Kampong Saba Darat ‘A’ had its roof blown off due to strong winds on Sunday, said the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD) yesterday, adding that no injuries were sustained by the residents.

It also shared that four firefighters from Sungai Kebun Fire Station, led by ABK 560 Haji Ali bin Haji Md Noor, responded to the incident. On arrival, the firefighters found the roof of the house blown away, and moved in to cover the missing segment with a tarp.

The FRD advised the public to stay updated with current weather conditions and follow the instructions issued by the Brunei Darussalam Meteorological Department and take appropriate measures to ensure everyone’s safety.
