A building still under construction (Tri Pinnacle) at a site in Tanjong Tokong caught passers-by and motorists off guard after smoke started billowing from the premises.

The Bagan Jermal Fire and Rescue Department fire station received a distress call about 5.30pm yesterday on the incident as thick smoke could be seen from the sixth floor of the building.

Soon after the call, several fire engines were immediately dispatched to the scene to put off the blaze.

Other fire engines from Paya Terubong, Teluk Bahang, and Jalan Perak also raced to the scene to assist in the operation.

Upon reaching the scene, the fire personnel also managed to rescue a crane driver who was trapped on top of the 46th floor.

A Bagan Jermal Fire and Rescue Department spokesman said fire personnel managed to put off the fire by 7.15pm.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

No casualties were reported in the incident.

    That’s why, don’t build high rise on hill slope, tendency of accidents is very high.

    risk of structural damage if the fire was too hot and too long . concrete will crack due to trapped moisture during cement mixing process

    I only have ONE life. Definitely not going to risk it for nothing, furthermore, this is a hill slope project, not worth the risk and the money.

    The project name should change to Fire-Pinnacle to suit the theme.

    too hot, a building, will yield lukewarm response…

    Crane driver trapped on 45th floor, possibly the car park block.? In any case, hope there will be a thorough investigation to the cause and extent of damage and this incident will act as a constant reminder to Aspen to ensure that all it’s building safety and quality standards are maintained. Any short cuts to minimize costs at the expense of safety will haunt them in later years eg the recent London apartment building fire .
