16 January 2016 morning. I received a short message from a colleague, there’s heavy smoke came out from inside the old building of Bahari Museum, one of the iconic landmark of old Batavia.
I rush my motorcycle across the town in a hurry to get there.
Arriving at the scene, the firefighters was already at work. The thick smoke make it difficult for breathing. I take my goggles with me as I walk to the closest safe area to take picture without intruding the firefighters at work.
The Maritime Museum in Penjaringan, North Jakarta, was razed by fire on Tuesday morning, 16 January 2018, at around 8:55 a.m, an official has said.
