My house on fire
It’s just another normal Wednesday on the 19th day of Ramadhan. Went to the nearby “bazar Ramadhan” to buy foods for iftar later today. Once done, got to the lift, and headed to my house.
As soon as I got out the lift at the floor, I saw quite a number of people, and there’s a little commotion. Then I’ve been greeted by the staff of my apartment’s club house. Encik. This is your house right? Your house is on fire. There’s nothing that can describe my feeling at that moment, and the first thing that came to my mind – are my cats alright?
And it’s a lot more relief to know that only the shoe rack at my front door is on fire. The front door of my house is fire resistant door and can stand for 3 hours.
There no damage on the inside, but the firemen has to knock down the door to make sure that the inside of the house is not on fire.
The corridor of my house is very dark caused by the smoke from the rubber of the burning shoes on the shoe rack.
We believe that this is the case of arson. Spoken to the staff of the club house that there’s a water tank maintenance today at the top of the building, and he walked pass by in front of my house getting back from the rooftop at 4:30pm. Not long after that, someone reported that my house is on fire at 4:45pm.
After all are settled down, I noticed that there’s a foot step leading towards my bedroom. After checking the house, noticed that 3 things are missing from my house
- A container that I use to put my loose change coin. I believe the amount is reaching RM300 already
- My Sony video camcorder
- Unopened pack of fresh milk from fridge
It such a sick thing for someone to take an advantage of the troubled face by others. It’s hard to know who as my door if left opened after the firemen broke down the door, and anyone can go in freely into my house.
