Resorts World Genting has reported that no one was injured after a fire broke out at a multi-level escalator within the Malaysian resort on Monday.
The fire, located in a section of RWG between Genting Grand and First World Hotel, started sometime around 6pm on Monday and quickly spread through a nearby landscaped area filled with plastic flowers. Firefighters extinguished the blaze within 30 minutes although smoke reportedly affected around 10% of the property.
In a Tuesday statement, RWG said, “The management has reported that no one was hurt and that the resort is not affected by the incident as the area is located at an isolated area. All operations continue as normal.
“Customers were quickly ushered away by the resort’s fire response team who were at the scene and had immediately cordoned off the area when the fire happened.
“The fire brigade was at the scene within 10 minutes and the fire was put down instantaneously.”
The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
