One row of longhouse at Bakun resettlement scheme at Sungai Asap, Belaga went up in flame today.
The longhouse according to various source that of Uma Badeng – a Kenyah community.
Ironically, earlier this month, Murum assemblyman Chukpai Ugon (BN-Murum) was told based on a study risk of fire broke out in Murum and Kabong is low (score 6).
“Therefore, there is no urgent plan to build a Fire and Rescue station in the areas,” said Datuk Dr Penguang Manggil, deputy Minister of local Government.
Liwan Lagang, Belaga Assemblyman and Deputy Minister (Water Supply) Liwan briefly commented “Our thoughts and prayers are with them,” on a Whatsapp group about the incident.
