Senior citizen saves 11 from fire

Rahmah Mohamad bravely ran to a burning house and knocked on the door, screaming to alert the family sleeping inside.

The 70-year-old was in her kitchen preparing kuih to sell at about 5am on Saturday, when she noticed one of her neighbour's houses on fire.

"I rushed to the house, which is about 50m away, shouting and knocking on the house door and wall to wake the family, which I assumed was asleep. I continued trying until they finally woke up, " she said in a report by Kosmo!

During the blaze, one house, which belonged to a family of seven, was completely burnt down while another house, with a family of four, was partially destroyed.
