Plumes of smoke seen from construction site in Siglap

Black plumes of smoke could be seen coming from a construction site in Siglap after construction materials there caught fire earlier on Monday afternoon.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it received a call for assistance at 3.16pm and dispatched a fire engine, one Red Rhino and two fire bikes to the site along Siglap Road and Cheviot Hill.

SCDF officers arrived to find construction materials measuring 10m by 10m on fire and three water jets were used to douse the flames within five minutes.

No one was injured and investigations are ongoing.
