Two people were taken to hospital after a fire involving a clothes dryer broke out at HarbourFront Centre shopping mall on Friday afternoon (Nov 8).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it responded to a fire in a second-floor unit at 1 Maritime Square at 1.23pm.

A spokesman told Stomp: "A fire involving a clothes dryer was extinguished by a member of the public with one fire extinguisher prior to SCDF's arrival."

Two people were taken to Singapore General Hospital, added the spokesman.
