Stompers LoSteven, Zhang Tong, Gerek, Beng Chai, John, Sravan, Perry, Dean and Yan Moe saw a blaze and a thick cloud of smoke at a waste management plant in Jurong, Tanjong Kling, at around 12pm today (Tuesday).

The ball of flame and column of smoke were so huge that Lo saw both from an office in Pioneer Crescent.

A video Lo sent to Stomp shows the office staff gasping in shock when they see the huge ball of flame from afar.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force said in a Facebook post that the fire involved a section of a waste management plant was well alight.

In the post, SCDF said:

"SCDF promptly surrounded and contained the fire, covering an area of 30m by 30m, with foam jets.

"The fire is currently well under control.

"Workers in the premises had evacuated prior to SCDF arrival.

"No injuries have been reported."
