Good gracious, not the Pudu Wai Sek Kai too!
Following the recent fire events where the Seremban wet market was engulfed and 25 people were killed in a blaze, another famous local food street has fallen victim to Mother Nature.
According to witnesses on Facebook, Pudu’s famous Glutton Street caught fire in the wee hours approximately 2:30am this morning (Friday, 15th September). In the series of videoclips posted on social media, the team of firemen can be seen working on extinguishing the blaze as shocked onlookers capture the incident on their smartphones.
As at time of writing, no official reports have surface. The cause of the fire and casualties are still up in the air. Having said that, several netizens have commented that the fire started in the middle section before spreading to other stalls. It appeared that nobody was injured when the blaze happened.
As one of the oldest food streets in Kuala Lumpur, Pudu’s Wai Sek Kai has been around for more than 6 decades. Hopefully these stalls will be rebuilt soon.
We can’t live without our favourite street food 🙁
