Small fire at Marina Square's Carl's Jr outlet, no one injured

SINGAPORE- A small fire occurred at a Carl's Jr outlet, located on the first floor of Marina Square mall around 6pm this evening (March 29). No one was injured in the incident.

The Marina Square mall fire safety officers put out the fire immediately before the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) personnel arrived, said a spokesman for Marina Centre holdings.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Only the kitchen equipment of the restaurant was damaged. Other parts of the mall were unaffected.

Ms Chew, a patron of the mall, said she was shopping on the second floor of the mall when she smelled a burning smell.

"I went down to look around and there were fire engines parked and a few fire fighters. The area was being cordoned off so I left."

The SCDF said there were 16 fires along the Orchard Road shopping belt last year, and 19 in 2014.
