A fire broke out at a coffee shop in Yishun yesterday morning which resulted in a woman being taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told The Straits Times that it responded to the fire at Block 101 Yishun Avenue 5 at about 5.35am, extinguishing the fire with a water jet.
