A short circuit in the electrical system is being blamed for a fire on Monday, July 21, 2014, at the luxury boutique Amankila Resort located on Bali’s eastern shore at Karangasem.
Fast reaction from the Hotel’s security team kept the fire limited to a single bungalow where damage is estimated at Rp. 600 million (US$52,000).
The fire occurred in Suite #5 occupied by a couple from the U.S.A. and their adult daughter. No injuries resulted from the fire.
The fire was discovered at 45 minutes past midnight with flames coming from the thatched roof of the bungalow. An alarm was immediately raised with security staff and the Karangasem Fire Station.
The fire fighters arrived at 1:10 am with two fire trucks that managed to extinguish the blaze by 3:00 am.
