Stomper Maurice, Jun, Shanna, Simeon, KuroUsagi, Kelvin, Mike, Patrick and John all witnessed a large fire which could be seen from various part of Singapore tonight (Mar 30).

The fire was seen in areas such as Toa Payoh, Ang Mo Kio, Serangoon, Dakota and Punggol.

However, this may just be a gas flare from a plant in Johor, as such incidents have happened in the past as well.

Nevertheless, many were concerned, even terrified by the fire that they thought was happening in Singapore, and took videos and photos which they sent to Stomp. 

Said Maurice who saw the blaze from his flat in Block 145, Toa Payoh Lor 2:

"The fire just got bigger and bigger.

"I have never seen anything like that before."

According to Jun who lives in Serangoon Avenue 1, her neighbour had told her the fire started at around 7.30pm.

Shanna from Punggol commented that the fire may be in Malaysia as she also could see the fire.

John who was at Farrer Road during the time of incident theorised that the fire was coming from a plant in Malaysia:

"The fire is most likely from a Malaysia incineration plant."

Stomp has reached out to the SCDF and SPF and confirmed that there was no fire happening at the time of incident.
