Back in 2009, there was this rumour going around that DBKL/FT Ministry were the ones responsible for the fire in Kampung Kerinchi.
Intrigued, I went and searched around the net to find out whether there’s any truth behind the allegation. I do not have concrete proof but there seems to be a pattern emerging in all the fire affecting the urban villages – a) that they started from an empty house, b) the fire happened mostly during festive seasons, and c) no casualties recorded.
