Several voices can be heard yelling in Malay as the people try to put out the raging fire. Here’ s a partial transcript and translation:

“INI ATAS DULU, ATAS DULU. (THE TOP FIRST, THE TOP.)
ATAS DULU, SANA. (THE TOP FIRST, OVER THERE)
TALIPON, TALIPON. (TELEPHONE, TELEPHONE)
CEPAT, CEPAT. (FASTER, FASTER)
TERBAKAR, TERBAKAR. (BURNING, BURNING)”

Mr Iskandar Abu Nazir, the son of Mizzy Corner’s stall’s owner, told reporters that the damage might have been worse had the public not acted quickly to put out the fire. Those who helped include fellow stall owners at the hawker centre.

Mr Nazir said, “We have to try and look at the situation in a positive light. We take it as a lesson learnt, maybe to be more vigilant in future.”
