On July 10, 2024, a massive fire engulfed three shophouses in Jalan Imam Bonjol in Denpasar, Bali. This incident occurred in the early hours of the morning, at around 04:00 WITA. The fire destroyed three shops located in Banjar Buagan, Pemecutan Kelod, West Denpasar. This fire caused significant material losses and shook the local community.

Cause of Fire

The cause of this fire is still under investigation. Initial suspicions point to an electrical short circuit as the main trigger. Electrical short circuits are often the cause of fires in commercial buildings.

There are several other factors that can worsen the fire situation. Flammable materials stored inside the store, such as perfume, leather bags and electronics, can accelerate the spread of fire. Building conditions that may not meet fire safety standards are also a contributing factor.

Eyewitness Testimony

According to Ajis, one of the shop owners who was a victim of the fire, the fire started around 04.00 WITA. The fire quickly engulfed the entire building. This testimony reinforces the notion that the fire broke out very quickly and unexpectedly.

Material Loss

This fire caused huge material losses. The three shops that caught fire, Double Leather, Indie Perfume and Mekar Cell Counter, were completely destroyed. The merchandise inside the shops were burnt down.

Social Impact

The fire also affected the surrounding community. Many residents felt anxious and worried about their safety. This incident reminds us of the importance of preparedness in dealing with fire disasters. People around the scene helped put out the fire before the firefighters arrived at the location.

Rescue Actions

There were several successful rescue actions. A couple and their toddler were rescued from inside the burning store. This success shows the importance of quick response and good coordination between residents and firefighters.

Preventive Measures

It is important for shop and commercial building owners to ensure their electrical installations are in good condition. Regular checks by professional electricians can help detect potential problems before they become disasters.

Provision of Fire Extinguishers

Every store and commercial building should be equipped with easily accessible fire extinguishers. Training in the use of fire extinguishers is also important so that owners and employees can respond quickly in the event of a fire.

Public Education and Awareness

Raising public awareness about the dangers of fire and how to prevent it is another important step. Fire education and simulation programs can help the community be better prepared for emergency situations.

Final Thoughts

The fire that engulfed three shophouses in Jalan Imam Bonjol, Denpasar, Bali, on July 10, 2024, is a warning to all of us about the importance of safety and preparedness. Initial suspicions point to an electrical short circuit. The material losses and social impacts were enormous. The successful rescue actions demonstrated the importance of rapid response and good coordination.

Preventive measures such as improving electrical safety, providing fire extinguishers, and educating the public should be prioritised. By doing so, we can reduce the risk of fire and protect lives and property from the threat of fire.
