SAGAING DIVISION – One PDF ammunition camp that produced weapons was set on fire on June 19. It was the camp of the Chindwin Attack Force, Monywa District Battalion.
A spark, which blew away, caused a fire while welding, resulting in damages worth around 30 million MMK, according to an official of the Chindwin Attack Force.
“One group was producing, and another was welding. Then, a spark flew and the camp exploded and burnt down,” he said.
He mentioned that they want to apologize because the items, which were bought with public support, were lost.
“We want to apologize to the public in relation to this case. All of these were acquired with public support, and we lost them due to our recklessness,” he said.
Ammunition, handmade guns, motors, and other equipment were lost during the fire. On April 10, Danger Force Local PDF’s ammunition camp was also accidentally set on fire due to high temperatures.
