The vehicles arrived within seven minutes. Upon their arrival, firefighters deployed five water jets to contain the fire and prevent it from spreading to neighbouring units. At the height of the operation, firefighters surrounded the units with seven water jets. SCDF’s Unmanned Firefighting Machine, an aerial appliance and foam were also used during the operation.

The SCDF said that the fire had involved laundry and paper products, including cartons of boxes.

 

The fire was brought under control within 90 minutes and extinguished at around 6.30am. At 7am, the SCDF said that it was carrying out damping down operations, a term used to describe the application of water to burnt surfaces. This prevents a possible rekindling of fire from the heat of burnt surfaces.
