Genting Resort escalator caught fire
The escalator between Genting Grand and First World Hotel had caught fire at around 6pm on 1 Jul.
Visitors were “quickly ushered away” by resort staff who also had the area cordoned off soon after the fire happened.
Firefighters arrived at the scene within just 10 minutes, and successfully extinguished the fire 30 minutes later.
According to Malay Mail, around 10% of the building was affected by the fire, mostly comprising of plastic flower landscaping.
Thankfully, nobody was hurt as a result of the incident.
