The flames had totally engulfed the unit and firefighters from Tampines Fire Station and Changi Fire Station had to force their way into the flat. They also had to force their way into a bedroom on the first storey of the flat, where they found a man lying unconscious on the floor. The firefighters immediately carried him out of the burning unit, SCDF said. The man was assessed by an ambulance crew and was taken to Changi General Hospital. The fire was eventually extinguished with two water jets and about 180 people from neighbouring units were evacuated as a precautionary measure. The cause of the fire is under investigation, SCDF added. In videos posted on social media, flames and smoke can be seen pouring out of the Tampines flat as onlookers shouted and screamed. The sound of glass breaking can be heard in one three-second clip that showed debris falling from the unit. Embed Facebook
