Suara.com – The PT Pura Group Kudus paper mill, which is located on Jalan Kudus-Pati Kilometer 12, Terban Village, Jekulo District, Kudus Regency caught fire on Wednesday (13/4/2022) afternoon.
This fire, according to an eye witness who is a resident of Terban Village, Yanto, occurred at around 12.00 WIB.
At the time of the incident, he said, he saw directly from across the street that a large fire was burning the building where the paper was produced, and the smoke was also rising high into the air.
Currently, he happens to be waiting for a two-wheeled vehicle for PT Pura employees that is parked at his house which is located in front of the factory.
Meanwhile, the company’s employees were taking a break, so the majority were outside the factory and some helped extinguish the fire, before the fire team from PT Pura, BPBD and Satpol PP Kudus arrived at the location.
General Manager HR-GA Pura Group Agung Subani represented by Public Relations Noor Faiz confirmed that when the fire occurred at around 12.15 WIB, the employees were indeed resting because the rest schedule was from 11.30-12.30 WIB.
“At that time, there was indeed an explosion sound from the generator transformer panel, which was suspected to have experienced an electrical short,” he said via Antara.
The electrical panel is estimated to be in the building for the stop preparation section for paper raw materials, while in the warehouse there is also paper waste so that the fire also burns the waste.
“About 20 minutes later, the fire was successfully controlled and is currently in the cooling stage,” he said.
It is certain that work activities on the next day can continue to run normally, because after the cooling process is complete the production process can run again.
