A sudden blaze broke out at the home of Rizul and Yati on the 6th floor of Block 886B, Woodlands Drive 50 on Friday evening, 22 Sept, around 6pm, destroying the unit and killing 2 of the family’s cats that died due to smoke inhalation.

Although the rest of the family escaped the fire and did not suffer any injuries, their home was gutted – as can be seen in this photo showing the extent of the fire as evidenced by the charred corridor outside the unit:

The kind neighbours of Rizal and Yati are appealing for funds to help the family rebuild their lives. Neighbour Khadijah Ali shared her neighbouring couple’s plight on her Facebook page, writing:

“Dear Morning all! As you’ve known, my next-door neighbour’s house caught fire yesterday. It was a very tragic day for the couple and all of us at 886B level 6. 2 of their cats died due to smoke inhalation and they are very distraught and devastated. I’ve asked their permission and they have agreed to for us to do monetary contribution on their behalf. Let us do our part to help them rebuild their lifes, be it small or big.”

The neighbours have posted that individuals willing to contribute may do so via funds transfer or by visiting the damaged unit to donate directly into a collection tin outside the flat.Follow us on Social Media
