Earlier today (13th February), Malaysian netizens in the Klang Valley were shocked by news of the iconic Employees Provident Fund (EPF) building along Jalan Gasing engulfed in flames.

According to The Star, the fire broke out at 11.50am, engulfing about 40 per cent of the building. The Fire and Rescue Department arrived at the scene shortly after it broke out, and managed to bring the fire under control. Thankfully, no casualties or injuries were reported.

Now, in a statement by the EPF addressing the incident, the organisation has come out to say that no data or savings were affected in the fire, stating,



“We would like to assure members that there has been no compromise to the data integrity or members’ savings in any manner.”

“As the safety of customers and staff is our prime concern, the building has been totally evacuated, and the office and counter services are closed until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will provide an update once the branch is back in operation.

Now, according to Berita Harian, the building has since been temporarily closed for investigations.

If members and employers wish to perform EPF transactions, the organisation has stated that they can do so at their nearest EPF branch, or they can contact the EPF Contact Management Centre at 03-8922 6000 or visit their enquiries page on their website here.

We’re just glad the blaze was put out before it could get any worse and that nobody was hurt! Let’s hope the authorities find out the cause behind this fire to ensure this never happens again in the future!
