SCDF was alerted to a fire at 28 Tuas Avenue 10 at about 4:10 pm. Upon SCDF’s arrival, the warehouse was well alight.
The deep seated fire involved scrap metals and plastic materials. Firefighters encircled the fire, an area of about 20 metres by 20 metres, with 8 water jets, 1 unmanned firefighting machine and 1 aerial firefighting platform. Foaming operations were also conducted.
The fire was extinguished at about 5.30pm and damping down operations are currently in progress.
Two workers from the warehouse have been conveyed to Singapore General Hospital by SCDF ambulances for burn injuries.
A total of 80 firefighters and 21 emergency vehicles were involved in the operation.
*Damping down is a term used by SCDF to describe the application of water to wet burnt surfaces immediately after the fire is put out. This is to prevent any potential rekindle of fire from the hot burnt surfaces
