A fire broke out at a Housing and Development Board (HDB) unit at Marsiling Lane 3 on Tuesday morning (May 3), causing the evacuation of about 20 residents from the block, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said.
SCDF said it was alerted to the fire on the 11th floor of Block 215, Marsiling Lane 3 at about 11.25am.
It despatched two fire engines, a Red Rhino, two fire bikes, a support vehicle and an ambulance to the scene. SCDF had to force its way into the flat to extinguish the blaze, which involved the contents of the living room, with a water jet.
It also evacuated the residents of the two floors above the unit. There were no reported injuries, SCDF added.
