A shop in AMK Hub shopping mall caught fire this morning at around 1:32am. Two fire engines, two red rhinos and five support vehicles were dispatched to the scene. With the help of one water jet and the building’s sprinkler system, Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) personnel managed to quickly put out the fire.

SCDF said the fire originated from the storeroom of a shop in basement one, involving contents  measuring 1m by 2m in the shop’s storeroom.
