A woman succumbed to her injuries sustained in her bid to escape a fire that engulfed a three-storey shophouse  at Jalan Merbau last night.

 

Huong Shi Fung, 20, and four other tenants, two of whom were her siblings, were seriously injured when they jumped from the third floor the building in a desperate bid to escape the blaze.

 

All the victims in their early 20’s were renting the first block of the third floor of the building.

 

They were rushed to the Miri Hospital but Huong was pronounced dead one hour later.

 

Two fire engines from Miri and Lopeng Fire and Rescue department with 15 firemen rushed to the scene after receiving a distress call at around 7.28pm and managed to put out the fire at around 11pm.

 

Two firemen were injured in fighting the fire.

 

One of them suffered from smoke inhalation while the other sustained burns on his left leg.

 

Preliminary inspection of the scene, found no other persons trapped inside the building.

 

The actual cause of the fire and estimated loss have yet to be determined.

 

Also present at the scene during the fire were the city police chief, ACP Khoo Leng Huat, Miri mayor, Adam Yii, Pujut assemblyman, Sebastian Ting and Assistant Minister for Land and Air Transportation and Safety Datuk Lee Kim Shin.
