29th September 2014 Monday

Fire destroyed a row of 10 double-storey wooden shophouses in Dunlop Street of Tawau on 29 September 2014 Monday  night.

The premises destroyed in the 11.45pm fire included jewellery shops, textile shops and a watch shop.
Three fire engines with 38 firemen brought the fire under control at 1am.
This old building was built in the early 1960s after a major fire had gutted the previous building there in 1953.

The shop houses are among the historical memories for elder generations in Tawau.

There was a famous coffee shop in the building before the shop moved to another building. The coffee shop was later replaced by a textile trader whose shop however was also destroyed in the blaze.
