2 elderly women saved from fire in Ang Mo Kio flat

Two elderly women were rescued by firefighters from the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) on Wednesday afternoon after a fire gutted a kitchen in an Ang Mo Kio flat. The SCDF said it was alerted to a fire at Blk 612 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 4 at about 4.54pm and its officers arrived at the scene within five minutes. Upon arrival, SCDF officers, wearing breathing apparatus sets, forced their way into the unit. A water jet was used to extinguish the fire, which was put out within 15 minutes. The fire was confined to the kitchen area, said the SCDF. One of the two women was found crouching in the corner of a bedroom in the flat. The second was found in a crouching position in a second room that was nearer to the kitchen. Both of them were carried to safety by two fire fighters.
