A fire at a semi-permanent stall in a densely populated area of West Cakung subdistrict, East Jakarta, on Friday, resulted in the death of a 17-month-old.

East Jakarta Fire and Rescue Agency official Gatot said he received information about the incident at 9:27 a.m.

“We deployed four fire trucks to the site to put out the fire. Some semi-permanent buildings had already been gutted by the fire,” he said on Friday.

As of 11 a.m. officers from the agency were still at the scene, tribunnews.com reported.

“We have yet to identify the cause of the fire and calculate the losses,” Gatot said. (fac)
