    The cause of the Fire was due to Fircracker thrown from a nearby apartment towards the Buildings generator which caused the Fire.

    Wake up the so called "SLS". These fires are due to dangerous fire work being sold in the market. It is a menace and should be regulated.

    I saw 2 fire engines when I passed that way at around 10:00pm last night.As mentioned in the article above, I wonder how 5 "ambulances" would have doused the fire.

    The usual story, Sri Lankan firemen are able to douse the fire once the entire building has been destroyed by it. .
