A fire broke out at the 18th storey of Liat Towers in Orchard Road on Wednesday evening (25 March).

On Wednesday, Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told The Straits Times that it was alerted to a fire at 541 Orchard Road at about 10pm.

It dispatched 13 emergency vehicles to the scene.

SCDF said that firefighters, donning breathing apparatus sets, entered the smoke-logged building to put out the fire.

“The fire, which involved contents of a retail unit, was extinguished by SCDF using one water jet,” it said.

One person was rescued and taken to Singapore General Hospital.

The cause of fire is under investigation.
