KUALA LANGAT: Two sisters, whose parents were away helping to prepare food for firemen, died in a fire at their home in Kampung Indah here this morning.

Their parents were out helping firemen who were battling a fire at a chemical plant at the Pulau Indah Industrial Park in Port Klang when a fire broke out at their home at 2.48am.

The victims have been identified as Nur Salsabila Mohd Fakrul Khair, 16, and Nur Ain Sumayyah Mohd Fakrul Khair, 13.

“They were alone in the house,” Selangor assistant Fire and Rescue Department chief, Hafisham Mohd Noor Nur said today.
