It was learned that the victim was walking past the garbage incineration near her home while holding an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. That was the moment the fire burned on her. She was immediately rushed to the hospital nearby.

The victim got transferred to another hospital as the hospital that she was initially sent to was specialized in treating COVID-19 patients. Due to the high surgical cost, the family of the victim has no choice but to turn to Facebook to ask for the help of people to raise funds for her surgery. Her family member, Kiki posted the whole incident on Facebook and they hope to raise 21 million rupiahs (MYR 5700).
