30 people evacuated after PMD caused fire at Block 1 Eunos Crescent

Fire @ Block 1 Eunos Crescent

” On 14 June at about 3.05pm, SCDF was alerted to a fire at Block 1 Eunos Crescent.

Upon SCDF’s arrival, part of a corridor on the 7th floor of the block was engulfed in flames. SCDF extinguished the fire using a fire extinguisher and one water jet.

About 30 residents from the affected block were evacuated by the police as a precautionary measure. There were no reported injuries.

Preliminary investigation into the cause of the fire indicates that it was of electrical origin from a Personal Mobility Device (PMD) that was charging shortly before the occurrence of the fire.

SCDF would like to remind the public on the prevention of PMD fires with the following fire safety tips: go.gov.sg/pmdfiresafetytips

All owners of non-UL2272 certified PMDs are strongly encouraged to dispose of their devices. Dispose of them for free now and visit go.gov.sg/pmddisposal to find out the disposal locations.”
