A FIRE has broken out today (Aug 17) around 1.30pm in the CK building at Tampines, spewing billows of black smoke into the air. No one was injured.

Reader Chris Henson sent us this video which was also posted on his Facebook page. In the clip, someone is recorded saying: “That’s a big fire, a really big fire.” The video was shot from Bedok.


Channel News Asia has also posted a video of the fire, which currently has more than 100,000 views, 1,300 likes and reactions, and 148 comments.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said the fire was raging on the third and fourth floor of the building located in Tampines St 92. Six water jets were used on the exterior of the building to contain the fire. It later said on its Facebook page that paper products, household items and aerosol cans had generated “intense heat, impeding an interior attack”.
