A fire broke out in a densely populated area in Chbar Ampov this morning. Fortunately, it was put out in time before a grave disaster could happen.

The incident took place between 7:00 am to 8:00 am this morning in an fishing area crowded with wooden houses. The fire has destroyed two houses by the time it was put out by three fire trucks.

The police are still investigating the cause of the incident, but the people in the area claimed an electrical fault started it.

The area, however, has been known for its extreme vulnerability to the fire, as fire trucks usually find it hard to enter.
