SINGAPORE - A fire broke out at a condominium on Sturdee Road, off Serangoon Road, on Wednesday evening (Dec 30).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that it received a call at about 6.30pm on Wednesday and dispatched three fire engines, two fire bikes and a support vehicle.

The fire involved discarded items in the basement car park and was extinguished using a water jet.

About 12 people were evacuated by the building's security before the SCDF arrived. There were no reported injuries, the SCDF said, and the fire is under investigation.
