TAIPING: A lorry tanker laden with fuel burst into flames at a parking area in Simpang Halt here yesterday.

Several cars and motorcycles parked under a shed were also damaged in the 8am incident but there were no casualties.

Thirty-five firemen in four fire engines from the Kamunting, Taiping and Bagan Serai stations rushed to the scene and the blaze, which spread to an adjacent semi-wooden building, was brought under control by 10am.

Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Yusof Mohd Diah said the driver of the tanker lodged a police report over the incident, saying that the fire was caused by some sparks from under the vehicle.

He was making a turn at the site when he noticed the sparks, said ACP Yusof.
