Fire so large that SCDF firemen take turns having dinner on-site

Fire so large that SCDF firemen take turns having dinner on-site
The bush-fire at Bukit Batok was so large that firemen had to work extra hard and take turns having their dinner on-site to ensure that it was put out, says STOMPer WS.

The fire had been put out earlier on Tuesday morning (February 17) but started again in the afternoon.

This time round, the fire had spread towards the road and caused the Bukit Batok neighbourhood to be covered in soot and smoke.

WS says in an e-mail dated February 17:

"Bukit Batok hilltop fire was put out this morning. At 1pm, at the same spot, the fire started again. This time, it spread out near the road. The whole of Bukit Batok is now smoky and smelly.

"Ashes were all around. Curious people were looking out to the dense smoke.

"The firemen linked all their hoses together so that they can reach the tree top.

"Situation was finally controlled in the later afternoon around 5pm to 6pm. However, the firemen had to take turns to have their dinner at the void deck to ensure fires in all spots are fully put out."
