Yet another bush-fire at Bukit Batok

Yet another bush-fire at Bukit Batok
When STOMPer Chua looked out of the window at his Bukit Batok Central flat, he was shocked to be greeted by a cloud of dust and smoke.

A fire had broken out in the forested area nearby and caused a thick cloud of smoke to rise.

The fire, which started before 3:30pm on February 17, had not been put out one and a half hours later.

Chua says:

"I thought they were fogging the area with insecticide at first but when I opened the window I realised that there was a huge fire.

"There is a lot of smoke and the fire is spreading to the other corner.

"I did not see any fire engines until 4:15pm, when a small truck arrived with a few men. They did not seem to be able to handle the fire very well. It didn’t seem like they could put it out.

"Until now, the fire is still spreading.

"My house is covered in soot and dust now."
