The Head of Badung Public Relation Officer, Iptu Ketut Sudana confirmed that the warehouse that belongs to a man named I Komang Gede Astawa caught on fire, causing a huge damage to the building. “Despite being successfully extinguished by the fire department, the warehouse was completely destroyed by the incident that occurred on Monday morning around 8:10am.” Iptu Sudana said on Monday.

According to the information from the nearby villagers, prior to the incident Astawa’s aunt was spotted lighting up a fire to burn a pile of garbage next to Astawa’s warehouse that morning. Unfortunately, when the fire got bigger, Astawa’s aunt had left the scene, which allowed the fire to spread to the nearest building very quickly. “Realizing that something was wrong, Astawa came outside and was surprised, and said the fire was already very big.” Iptu Sudana added.

Astawa and nearby villagers attempted to extinguish the fire using very minimal equipment before the authorities from the Fire Department and Disaster Management Agency finally arrived and put out the fire. “Despite causing permanent damage to the warehouse, we’re thankful that nobody was injured from the incident today.” Iptu Sudana concluded. However, a police’ investigation to find out the cause of the incident is still underway.
