BANDUNG – A number of houses were damaged by a fire in Cicalengka (11/15) on Friday afternoon. A fire destroyed 1 house and 2 others were slightly damaged, in Malingping Village, Bojong Peuteuy Village, Cicalengka District, Bandung Regency.
Yani (36), one of the victims, said the fire was seen around 11.30 AM West Indonesia Time, from the kitchen. It is suspected that this fire was caused by a furnace that was still not extinguished. All of Yani’s belongings were burnt down. Only the clothes he was wearing could still be saved.
Responding to the incident, Rumah Zakat Action sent a team to distribute aid in the form of 3 mattresses and food ingredients. The food provided was 40 packs rendang Superqurban and 3 packages of nine-basic necessities consisting of 5 kg of rice, 1 liter of oil, 1 kg of sugar, and tea.
Hopefully, the food aid provided could be useful for survivors as a source of emergency energy shortly after the fire.
“Thank you, Rumah Zakat and donors, for providing assistance. May Allah SWT repay this kindness” said Yani to the team who came to the scene.
