"I am unsure of what was happening at Henderson Crescent, but there was a burning smell," the Stomper shared.

In response to a Stomp query, a spokesman for SCDF said they were alerted to the fire at 3.20pm.

"SCDF conducted a forced entry into the 24th floor unit using a hydraulic tool to reach the fire, which involved contents of the kitchen," said SCDF.

"The fire was extinguished by SCDF using two fire extinguishers. About 30 people from the neighbouring units were evacuated as a precautionary measure."

The cause of fire is under investigation and there were no reported injuries.
