Fire razed about 50 houses at Kampung Pondo, Pulau Gaya here early today.
Sabah Fire and Rescue Department public relations officer Mohd Affendi K. Ramin said 20 firemen were despatched to the scene following a distress call at 7.07am.
“A fire department boat and three marine boats were used in the operation,” he told Bernama when contacted.
Mohd Affendi said no casualties were reported while the cause and losses had yet to be determined.
A fire broke out there on July 3 last year, destroying 20 to 30 houses.
