TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – A room located at the National Police headquarters’ intelligence and security agency (Baintelkam) located in South Jakarta reportedly caught fire on Thursday. According to police officials, the fire had no significant effect on the items stored in the intelligence unit.
“Based on information from those in the field is that the fire was quickly under control and there were no items that were burned,” said Ramadhan on Friday dawn, November 25, Antaranews reported.
According to the National Police spokesperson brigadier general Ahmad Ramadhan, the fire was quickly put out, which came from a possible short circuit of two power supply units (UPS) installed in the room. He said that the UPSs were initially about to be moved outside of the building but short-circuited during the process.
“Reports suggest there were two UPS batteries that had problems and created smoke. It was put out with fire extinguishers,” he explained. “There was some sort of shortcircuit that created sparks.”
The Jakarta firefighter call center employee Suparno said they were informed about the fire at 19:55 Western Indonesia Time (WIB) and immediately mobilized three fire trucks before declaring the fire stopped just 5 minutes later with the use of fire extinguishers.
“The fire went out at 8:00 PM WIB,” said Suparno.
