A major fire broke out at an industrial building in San Po Kong on Thursday causing anxious moments for people living in the area but fortunately there were no serious injuries or casualties. Shortly after noon, emergency crews received a call informing them of a blaze at the Kai Tak Factory Building that is located along King Fuk Street. More than 100 firefighters rushed to the scene and battled the blaze at the 13-storey building that was built over 50 years ago. It took the crews almost eight hours to put out what has now been classified as a third-alarm blaze.
According to Apple Daily the fire was believed to have been caused by a faulty air purifier inside a stage production house that was occupying a section of the second floor of the industrial estate. A 26-year-old female worker first became aware of the fire after she smelt something burning. She attempted to put out the fire along with a 20-year-old male colleague but failed. They then called the police and evacuated the building. The fire spreaded quickly as there were large amounts of highly inflammable materials such as polystyrene, fabric, plastics, and wood at the scene. The building was not equipped with an automated sprinkler system which made the work for the firemen more difficult. The Fire Services Department quickly raised the alarm level of the fire to three after the blaze had spread at 1:45 pm.
More than 700 students and teachers at Cognitio College, which is right opposite the factory building, had to be evacuated amidst the smoke. Firemen kept pumping water into the building. Almost all the people who came out from the premises were seen with their faces covered in black soot. The scaffolding and another unit next to the building were affected but luckily the fire was put out in time and did not spread to any other buildings.
The Home Affairs Department’s Wong Tai Sin Public Enquiry Service Center set up a support station for residents nearby who needed help. Traffic became very congested as the street between Sam Chuk Street and Tseuk Luk Street, and the only traffic lane that connected to King Fuk Street, were completely sealed off for safety reasons.
The fire slowly came under control at about 7:30 pm and was completely put out at around 8 pm. Wong Hau-on, a fire division officer of the Kowloon Central district, said they are conducting an investigation into the incident. As of now, there is nothing to suggest any foul play or arson. The area that had been burnt was around 4,500 square feet in size and had been filled with highly flammable material, enclosed in small, compact spaces, making the fire-fighting task difficult.
Police arrested four South Asian men suspected of robbing a man who was depositing money at an automated teller machine in Shatin last month, hk01.com reports. The suspects – two Pakistanis, aged 33 and 37 and two Indians aged 23 and 27 were arrested in Sham Shui Po, Yau Ma Tei, Yuen Long and Tin Shui Wai, respectively on Wednesday.
They were apparently seeking asylum in Hong Kong as they were found holding recognizance forms on the basis of torture claims.
Chief Inspector Jacky Sheung Chun-kit, of the Shatin Police District’s criminal investigation unit said the robbery took place on October 9 when the victim, a 55-year-old local man went to an ATM at Lucky Plaza in Sha Tin to deposit 150,000 yuan (US$22,600), part of the 200,000 yuan he had withdrawn earlier from mainland China. As he was operating the machine several men suddenly showed up and banged his head against the machine. The robbers fled the scene with 120,000 yuan after punching and kicking the victim. Police identified the suspects through footage from security cameras and launched a manhunt.
After days of investigation the police took action on Wednesday and made the arrests. Police found five knives during a search of one suspect’s flat in Sham Shui Po while another suspect’s flat in Tin Shui Wai yielded over HK$10,000 in cash, but no sign of renminbi.
