Photos from Tampines bushfires: Part 1

img205

Several weeks ago, I blogged about a submission to STOMP about a large bushfire along Tampines Avenue 9 on 3rd March 2010. There was another post on STOMP about the same fire.

This same area had caught fire at the end of January last year.

It turns out that the same person, Jeremy Chin, had sent his photos to STOMP last year, and also did so this year. Here are the original posts he had submitted to STOMP:

Tampines bush fire so huge, it can be seen from Eunos (31st January 2009)
More pictures from massive Tampines bushfire (4th March 2010)

He left a comment on my repost of his submission:
Hi Ivan,

I'm the original contributor of the above article to STOMP.

Happened to chance across your blog on the search engine.

Pls do contact me at destinee.sg@gmail.com if you need some high resolution photos of the above incident and the aftermath of it that's not available to STOMP or for anyone else.

I got in touch with him and he sent me his photographs, and kindly gave me the permission to post them up here.

Here are his photos from the bushfire that took place last year:
