GEORGE TOWN (Bernama): A young couple managed to flee in the nick of time with their baby boy before their room in a budget hotel at Jalan Utama here was razed.

The Penang Fire and Rescue Department, in a statement on Tuesday (Sept 29), said the fire broke out around 7am on Tuesday.

The couple, both in their 20s, and their baby, only suffered breathing difficulties for inhaling too much smoke and they were sent to Penang Hospital for treatment, said the department.

It added that the fire team took about 10mins to control the fire from spreading to other rooms in the hotel building.

The department is investigating the cause of the fire, he said, adding that no one was hurt in the incident.- Bernama
