Oh no! The KWSP building at Jalan Gasing was on fire!
Netizens have taken to Facebook and Twitter to share photos and clips of the smoke billowing out from building. As a result, there’s currently a massive jam occurring along the Federal Highway.
“KWSP is on fire. Please tell your friends and family to stay away from this area; debris of the building could be hazardous. The whole building was on fire,” Twitter user Balthazar wrote.
It is unclear yet what caused the fire, but we’re hoping that employees working at the KWSP Petaling Jaya have safely evacuated the scary scene. Although the fire has stop, several netizens are claiming that the top part of the building has been destroyed.
