The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to the incident at 12.45pm and that one fire engine, one Red Rhino, and one fire bike were dispatched to the scene. They found that the fire involved discarded items at the void deck, and SCDF extinguished the blaze with one water jet.

SCDF said there were no casualties, and the cause of fire is still under investigation. Ms Gui told Channel NewsAsia that a "big trolley of garbage" had been left at the void deck since April, by a woman who collects discarded items.
