Ang was at home, busy with her computer, around 10pm when she suddenly heard a loud ‘boom’. She came out to discover that a flat belonging to a family with pet cats was on fire.
She then quickly went to alert all her surrounding neighbours living on the same floor to evacuate. Police officers were able to arrive to help out with a smooth evacuation. One also carried an old lady with walking-difficulty on his back to evacuate faster.
There is no injuries reported but unfortunately, 3 cats were unable to escape and died in the fire. The pet owner was found visibly upset as she was comforted by her friends.
As investigations are still being conducted, it is speculated that the cause of fire was the charging of multiple appliances at the same time – including an electric scooter.
