SINGAPORE- Two men were taken to hospital after a fire broke out at a factory in Sungei Kadut on Sunday morning.

Residents in the Chua Chu Kang area reported seeing large plumes of black smoke rising from the industrial estate.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force was alerted to the fire at about 9.52 am. When its officers arrived six minutes later, they saw that the zinc roof of a single storey factory at No 14 Sungei Kadut Street 6 had collapsed after the fire burnt through it.

Wood and metal products in the factory accentuated the raging flames which overwhelmed an area slightly smaller than a football field, or 80m by 80m.
