An early morning blaze on Thursday, April 22, 2010, caused significant damage to at least five stores at the Kuta Square Complex in Bali. The fire, which was discovered at 8:00 a.m., virtually destroyed Body and Soul, Quicksilver and Oakley while causing damage to the upper levels of Fuji Film and Puravida.
According to Radar Bali, the fire started on the third floor of the Quicksilver clothing company and spread to the adjoining Oakley shop. 15 units from the local fire brigade responded, managing to bring the fire under control by 10:15 am. Forensic investigators are still investigating to try to determine the origin of the fire with preliminary suspicion placed on a possible short circuit at the Quicksilver outlet.
Holidaymakers enjoying their breakfast in the Kuta area on the day of the fire saw a large black cloud of smoke created by the fire rising above Kuta's skyline.
No injuries resulted from the early morning fire.
