KUALA LUMPUR: Seven vehicles in a parking area at a People’s Housing Project (PPR) in Pantai Dalam, here, were destroyed in a fire today.
Brickfields district deputy police chief Basri Sagoni said a team was deployed to the location at about 12.45pm after they received a report regarding the incident.
He said seven vehicles of various models were found burned in the car park area of the PPR and the fire forensics team who were sent to the location found a bottle smelling of petrol.
