A villa that belongs to a Dutch national named Frans Josef Hubertus Johanna Becks caught fire on Monday morning (10/1).
The Head of the Denpasar Public Relations Police Office, Iptu Ketut Sukadi, confirmed that the villa known as D’Gladak Villa in Jalan Tanjung Number 8A, Sanur caught fire, destroying most of the structure.
The incident was first spotted by a witness named Mintan. She woke up that morning and noticed a big fire from the villa.
“The witness named Minta spotted the fire from the villa at 4:00 am, so she immediately informed her husband and the villa owner,” Iptu Sukadi said on Monday.
Once he realized what was going on, the owner called the Fire Department. The fire brigade extinguished the fire at 5:45 am, using four fire trucks from the Denpasar Regional Disaster Management (BPBD).
However, Sukadi admitted that the incident destroyed many valuable things in the villa. “The owner lost around USD $56,000 (IDR 800 million), including electronic devices and furniture,” Sukadi concluded.
