I took this picture of a house on fire when I was visiting the Digital Mall on the 28 of January, 2010. I was there to check on the status of repair on my notebook.
It was quite exciting. The fire department almost put out the fire by the time I took this photo. When I saw the front of the house, it looks like it started from the first floor of a house that had its ground floor converted into a car wash. Probably a worker's quarter on the first floor.
I think these houses are really old, probably build in the 70's. Back then, there was no Digital Mall or market. There was Jaya Supermarket and a wet market where the Digital Mall stands now.
Those low-cost houses were right next to the market. Back then, everything wasn't higher than 2 stories, except for Jaya Supermarket. The other large building was the mosque just a kilometer away.
Those were the day. So it's sad to see the houses damaged by fire. I hope they rebuild it.
