Fire

Was on the way to my in-laws last Saturday when we saw this pillar of dark black smoke. Immediately we knew it was a fire.


As we neared the traffic lights, we could see that it was quite a big fire.
What was interesting to me was the numerous cars parked by the side of the road, with people standing outside their cars looking, pointing, and talking; and a mini traffic jam at the traffic lights. Very Malaysian. We like to look at 'incidents' but rarely do anything (e.g. traffic accidents). Of course, one can argue, what can be done, as the fire is huge. Perhaps by not parking indiscriminately, thus allowing other cars to pass by would be a start. I don't know.. perhaps the Fire Services could advise what could be done.
