Kota fire and rescue station chief Ahmad Hafezze Mat Junoh said a team of 16 firefighters from the Kota and Tampin fire stations were rushed to the scene after receiving a distress call from the public at 5.14 am.

“Two stalls were razed while three other units suffered 80 per cent damage. The fire spread quickly due to strong winds. No casualties were reported.
