A Stomper witnessed Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers attend to a fire that had occurred in the motor room of a lift at Block 353 Yishun Ring Road today at around 10.30am.

The Stomper was washing his car when he noticed a strong burning smell in the air.

He said that a supervisor from the Town Council arrived at the block shortly after the smell was reported and that the SCDF arrived just five minutes later.

The fire was put out quickly.

Said the Stomper:

"There was no ambulance on site so nobody was injured.

"It was not a big fire but what is concerning is that the lift is brand new and has been in operation for only 12 months."
