THE Penang government and the Malaysian Fisheries Development Authority (LKIM) will look into rebuilding the fishing boat workshop near Kampung Bakau Tua, Penaga in Kepala Batas, Seberang Prai Utara, which was destroyed in a fire on the night of Dec 30 last year.

Penang Agriculture, Agro-based Industry, Rural Development and Health Committee chairman Dr Afif Bahardin said the whole workshop building was razed and equipment inside were damaged due to a short circuit.
