SINGAPORE - A red glow was seen over the sky from the north-eastern and eastern parts of Singapore on Wednesday night.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it has received calls of reported sightings of fire but has not found any.

Homemaker Rae Moller, 56, told The Straits Times that she saw a red glow which lit up the night sky from her home at Joo Chiat Road at about 10pm.

Other users on social networking platform Twitter also uploaded pictures, with reports that the same glow could be seen from areas such as Sengkang, Bedok, Sembawang and Kallang.

When contacted, the SCDF said that it received four calls of reported sightings of fire between 9pm and 10pm.

It dispatched fire engines to four locations - Sentul Crescent, Yishun Avenue 9, Yishun Avenue 11 and Marine Crescent - but did not find any fire.
