Fire breaks out along Rowell Road

SINGAPORE: A huge fire broke out on Tuesday at 4 Rowell Road, off Serangoon Road, just before 7pm. It took Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers more than one hour to fight the blaze and to prevent it from spreading to adjacent units. Traffic around the area was also disrupted as hundreds of onlookers gathered to watch the blaze. Some told MediaCorp that they could see the smoke from Tekka Market. SCDF officers said the shophouse contained automotive parts and that a middle-aged man, who suffered from burns and smoke inhalation, was taken to hospital. A fire-fighter was also seen receiving medical treatment. The SCDF is investigating the cause of the fire.
