The dome of the collapsed JIC Grand Mosque has 12 fans weighing 1 ton  The estimated loss of the JIC Grand Mosque fire is around Rp. 1 billion. Jakarta (ANTARA) - Head of the JIC Study Subdivision Paimun Karim said the dome of the Great Mosque of Jakarta Islamic Center (JIC), Jalan Kramat Raya, North Tugu, Koja, North Jakarta, which collapsed after a massive fire on Wednesday, had 12 Betawi fan lights with 1 tonne in weight.  According to Paimun, the collapse of the dome was quite fast in only about half an hour when the dome caught fire at around 15.15 WIB.  "The rapid collapse of the dome may also be due to the heavy load of 12 Betawi fan lights weighing 1 ton," Paimun said in a statement in Jakarta, Wednesday.  The dome of the Great Mosque of JIC collapsed to the second floor and some of the debris reached the first floor of the Great Mosque of JIC.  Paimun said it was estimated that the fire in the main dome of the Great Mosque of JIC occurred after the Asr prayer. The fire first burned from the west side of the dome of the JIC Mosque. However, due to strong winds, the fire quickly burned another part of the dome body of the JIC Mosque.  The cause of the fire is suspected to have started with the dome repair work. As of August 26, 2022, the Great Mosque of JIC is currently under renovation by PT DASP who was appointed by PT MSM based on letter number 017/MSM/VIII/2022 dated August 19, 2022.  Acting (Pj.) Governor of DKI Jakarta Province Heru Budi Hartono currently reviewing the fire incident at the Jakarta Islamic Center (JIC), Koja, North Jakarta, Wednesday, did not deny that welding was underway shortly before the fire occurred.  However, Heru explained that the cause of the fire was still under investigation by the North Jakarta Metro Police.  "The cause is still being investigated by the North Jakarta Metro Police Chief. I was checking. The object on fire was the dome. The fire has been localized by the DKI Jakarta Gulkarmat Service," said Heru Budi Hartono at JIC, Koja, North Jakarta, Wednesday.  The fire was extinguished at 17.00 WIB. The fire can also be controlled by the DKI Jakarta Fire and Rescue Service (Gulkarmat) so that the fire does not spread to other buildings in the vicinity, namely the Social Cultural Building and the Business Building.  Paimun said a number of documents and computer equipment from the manager of the JIC Grand Mosque and other Islamic religious institutions were also successfully secured and transferred to the Library in the Social-Cultural Building.  Head of the Jakarta Gulkarmat Service, Satriadi Gunawan, explained that as many as 21 firefighting units with 90 personnel were deployed to extinguish the fire.  "The method of extinguishing it, because the building is high, we use a ladder car, but the initial extinguishing is with a pump from the bottom first to prevent propagation," he explained.  As a result of the incident, he revealed that the JIC dome collapsed. Until the fire was extinguished, it was confirmed that there were no casualties in the incident.  "The loss is not yet known, but the dome fell with the foundation around it," concluded Satriadi Gunawan.  Meanwhile, Head of North Jakarta and Thousand Islands Gulkarmat Sub-Department Rahmat Kristanto said the estimated loss of the JIC Grand Mosque fire reached around Rp 1 billion.  The JIC Mosque was built on October 1, 2001 and was first used for Friday prayers on September 9, 2002 and inaugurated on March 4, 2002.  The JIC Mosque for two decades has become the pride of the people of Jakarta. The historical aspect that stands in the former location of the Kramat Tunggak localization area of ​​10.9 hectares is phenomenal.  Another characteristic is the span of the dome of the JIC Mosque as a mosque with the longest stretch of dome without pillars in Southeast Asia, which is 66 meters. Currently, the area around the mosque has been lined with police for security.
