Quick action by security staff and assistance by local fire and police authorities managed to quickly bring under control a late-afternoon fire on Friday, October 20, 2006 at the Pavillions Private Villas at Jalan Danau Tamblingan No. 76 in Sanur.
One of the Villas security staff raised the alarm when he saw smoke and fire emanating from the living room area of one of the villas. Local residents and hotel staff fought the blaze until they were relieved by the fire fighters responding with five units to the scene.
The fire, thought to have been caused by a short-circuit that ignited the villa's thatched roof was brought under control within 30 minutes of its discovery with damage limited to the combined dining-living area of one of the villa units.
No injuries were reported and the occupants of the affected villa, a visiting family from Germany, were away from the property on tour at the time of the fire.
According to the Pavillions Private Villas Manager, Ms. Il Soon Kang, the remaining 13 villas in the complex were unaffected and operations at the popular resort remain normal. Repairs on the damaged unit, expected to take several weeks to complete, will commence next week.
