KUALA LUMPUR: The city Fire and Rescue Department will form a task force to conduct a comprehensive inspection of all Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) flats.

Its Kuala Lumpur director Muhammad Salleh Abdul said on Tuesday (Feb 13) the task force will carry out investigations and outline suggestions to improve the fire prevention system at DBKL flats.

Speaking to reporters after a visit to Block 70 of the Sri Sabah flats in Cheras, where a fire broke out on Sunday (Feb 11), he said in light of the incident, it seemed that an upgrade of the system was necessary.

Five units on the 17th floor of the block were destroyed in Sunday's fire, which Muhammad Saleh said originated from the electrical wiring distribution board of one unit.

Earlier, he accompanied accompanied Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Federal Territories) Dr Zaliha Mustafa; Deputy Women, Family and Community Development Minister Datuk Seri Dr Noraini Ahmad; Kuala Lumpur mayor Kamarulzaman Mat Saleh; Bandar Tun Razak MP Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail; and Cheras MP Tan Kok Wai to meet the displaced families and survey the scene.
