Videos and photos of the fire have gone viral, showing the huge fire that consumed the two shophouses. Some Netizens responded to the posts online on the fire by indicating that the area of Geylang is known for having hot girls walking the street, so the fire might have occurred due to the hot and fiery nature of the area.
