KOTA KINABALU: Firemen are continuing to fight a predawn major fire that has spread through a massive squatter colony in Sabah’s northern Kudat about 200kms from here.

A spokesman said the fire began about 5am Monday and was brought under control by about 8am.

So far there has been no reports of any casualties and an estimated 2,000 people may have lost their homes.
