KUALA LUMPUR: A noodle factory, which had been raided by the city council previously for unhygienic conditions, caught fire and was burnt to the ground.
The factory was one of five factory buildings at Batu 7, Jalan Ipoh, which caught fire around 3am yesterday.
Selayang Fire and Rescue station chief Azrul Khairi said they received a distress call at about 3.10am and arrived at the scene 15 minutes later.
“By the time we arrived, all five buildings were nearly destroyed,” he said.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation, he said.
