On the night of 22 April 2021, residents of Bukit OUG were horrified to see a massive blaze razing across the top floor of a condominium building.

Clips shared on social media and messaging apps show the bright orange flames spitting out thick, black smoke into the night sky. Suddenly, something gave way and debris turned to embers rained down.

By the end of the night, two units on the 12th floor of Bukit OUG Condo at Jalan 4/155, Bandar Bukit Jalil were completely destroyed.
