SINGAPORE: Police officers rescued two toddlers from a fire that had broken out at a Housing and Development Board (HDB) flat in Marsiling late on Wednesday night (Jun 22).
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it had been alerted to the fire at Block 218 Marsiling Crescent at around 10.40pm.
When firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire was raging and thick black smoke was coming from the unit.
The fire involved the contents of a bedroom in a second-floor unit, said SCDF in a Facebook post, adding that the blaze was extinguished with one water jet.
“As a result of the fire, the entire unit was affected by heat and smoke damage,” it added.
