Another mysterious fire outbreak in Miri...A famous old library was almost razed to the ground.
It would be another blow to our historic past. I remember riding my bicycle from Jalan Temonggong Oya all the way to the public library, just to either return or to borrow books from a large collection of books, mainly English books and some periodicals and magazines.

Previously, another mysterious fire was also reported at St. Columba's St. Aiden's block of classrooms. The fire completely destroyed some historical documents and records there.

In addition, before this fire, a very old institution built in the 20th century before Sarawak joined Malaya to form Malaysia, famously known as The Sarawak Club was completely razed to the ground.

Till today, there's absolutely no news regarding the old library fire which appears to be an act of arson.
