Wiring is the most common cause of fires

Shop owners should rewire their buildings if the wiring is more than 10 years old.

ALL pre-war shops with electrical wiring more than 10 years old should rewire their premises as the insulation may be damaged or worn off, which can lead to fires.

Fire Rescue Department Assistant Commissioner Wan Mohammad Zaidi Wan Isa said property owners must obtain the services of a licensed wireman to do the rewiring job.
