500 evacuated after fire breaks out at Singapore luxury hotel

Published on : Wednesday, March 27, 2019

About 500 people were evacuated Wednesday after a fire at a luxury hotel in downtown Singapore but there were no injuries, emergency services officials said.

 

 

 

The television footage showed thick black smoke billowing from the Grand Hyatt Hotel near the Orchard Road shopping district, but the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said the fire was quickly put out.

 

 

The violent fire involved a kitchen stove and an exhaust duct in a restaurant on the second floor, the SCDF said, adding it was extinguished by water sprinklers before firefighters arrived. It said that there were no reported injuries. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

 

 

The smoke was really terrible … it got into my throat. I think it was quite thick,” Nadiah Yayoh, 40, who works at a boutique in the hotel. Usually we have fire drills and normal evacuations, as well as fire practice … This is a lesson learnt not to take it lightly. It was the second luxury hotel fire in Singapore this year. About 1,000 guests were evacuated due to a fire at the downtown Carlton Hotel on February 14, but no injuries were also reported.
