A fire at a factory in Batu Caves, Gombak, last night may be the source of a stench that can be smelled in Publika, Mont Kiara and Taman Tun Dr Ismail from last night till this morning.
Although some have speculated that the factory was a chemical plant, a spokesman from the Selangor Fire and Rescue Department clarified that the factory processed food.
Furthermore, while the smell of the smoke is unpleasant, firefighters say there is nothing to worry about as it is not hazardous.
