Two people were taken to hospital after a fire broke out at Block 503 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 5 in the wee hours of the morning on Tuesday (Aug 7).

Stomper Jacqueline alerted Stomp to the fire and shared a video of it where the flames coming from the fourth-storey unit grew increasingly stronger.

In response to a Stomp media query, a Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) spokesman said that SCDF responded to the incident at about 4.30am.

"The fire, which involved contents of a bedroom, was extinguished by SCDF using a water jet and three compressed air foam backpacks," the spokesman said.

"Two persons were conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital by an SCDF ambulance."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
