40 people fled from Jalan Besar Plaza this morning after a fire broke out, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said. No injuries were reported, said the SCDF.
SCDF officers were alerted to the fire at 10.30AM. A fire engine, three Red Rhinos, two fire bikes and three support vehicles were despatched.
The origin of the fire might have started from discarded items at the lift landing area on the 9th floor. Investigations are on going.
