In a swift response to a fire outbreak at Block 34 Cassia Crescent on Thursday (27 Jul) at 12:45 pm, SCDF firefighters battled the smoke-filled unit, rescuing an individual and evacuating 30 residents.

SINGAPORE: On Thursday (27 Jul) at approximately 12:45 pm, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) swiftly responded to a distress call reporting a fire outbreak at Block 34 Cassia Crescent.

The incident unfolded with alarming intensity as black smoke billowed from a unit situated on the building’s 2nd floor.

Upon their prompt arrival, SCDF firefighters were faced with a smoke-logged environment but demonstrated remarkable agility and bravery to tackle the situation head-on.

Armed with water jets, the firefighters made an entrance through the front window, utilizing a ladder, and simultaneously accessed the unit from the rear entrance via the staircase.

The fire had originated in the kitchen area, but thanks to the firefighters’ prompt action, it was efficiently extinguished.

However, the perilous situation became more challenging when a rescue team stumbled upon an individual trapped in a bedroom within the affected unit.

The person was evacuated from the premises and promptly attended to by an SCDF ambulance crew.

Upon assessment, it was evident that the individual required immediate medical attention, prompting the ambulance crew to administer CardioPulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on-site.

The critical condition of the person necessitated continuing the life-saving procedure during transportation to Tan Tock Seng Hospital, where they are currently receiving medical care.

As a precautionary measure, authorities evacuated around 30 residents from neighboring units. Both the Police and SCDF coordinated their efforts seamlessly to ensure the safety and well-being of those in the vicinity.

At this point, the exact cause of the fire remains unknown and is under investigation.
