KUCHING, June 19 — An explosion is believed to have ripped open the shutters of four premises at Emart Sejingkat Sentral in Jalan Bako earlier today.

In a statement, Sarawak Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) said the explosion has affected three shops selling food and one clothing store in the premises as well as one of Emart premises’ shutters.

Bomba said they received a call informing them of a smoke coming out of the building at around 6.48am.
