Esi Mmrah, one of the affected residents, said that the fire had burnt an undisclosed amount of money from her cooperative organization.

She said the fire had destroyed her materials, mattresses, and other electrical appliances, indicating that the fire was able to cause huge damage because the residents in the apartment had tried to control the inferno by themselves, which eventually escalated.
