BUKIT MERTAJAM: A security guard suffered burns in a fire at a factory producing plastic goods at the Permatang Tinggi Industrial Park near here early today, according to the Penang Fire & Rescue Department.

Its operations officer, Mohd Fauzi Suid, said the guard was injured as he was fleeing from the factory, where various acids for the manufacturing process were stored.

“The man was sent to the Seberang Jaya Hospital,” he said, adding that he had yet to be identified.

Mohd Fauzi said the department was alerted to the fire at 1.21am and it rushed 50 firefighters to the factory where the fire occurred at the acid storage area.
