260 evacuated after fire breaks out at Kampung Admiralty

About 260 people, including senior citizens and children, were evacuated after a fire broke out at the Kampung Admiralty retirement complex on 26 Dec.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) responded to the incident at 676 Woodlands Drive 71 at about 1pm.

An electrical floor scrubber was said to be the trigger of the alarm in the building, but the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

The fire was extinguished by members of the public using dry powder extinguishers before SCDF’s arrival.

Fortunately, there are no reported injuries.

Recently so many fire incidents, why ah? Please ah, SCDF also humans leh, give them a break during this festive season also la, be more careful can? Nonetheless, great job SCDF!
