Suspicious fire at liquidated bank

15 June 2009  |  3990 views  |  0

There's an interesting news snippet from Jakarta today about a fire at IFI Bank, which was liquidated by Indonesia's central bank in April. It's slightly suspicious, but not in the sense of the blaze being started deliberately.

Firefighters say it was caused by a short circuit in a paper shredder, which caused a nearby sofa to catch alight. I don't want to cast aspersions, but perhaps the shredder in question has been a bit over-fed recently?
