Discarded items at the void deck of Block 473 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 10 and its seventh-floor staircase landing caught fire in the wee hours of Sunday (June 30).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told Stomp that it responded to a call at 3.45am.

A spokesman said: "Discarded items on fire were found at the void deck and Level 7 staircase landing. The fire was put out by members of the public prior to SCDF's arrival."

Stomper BC Chua, a resident at the block, saw charred remains at the staircase landing on Sunday, at around 8am.

He added: "There was a charred item resembling a personal mobilty device (PMD).

"The fire had also damaged the ceiling light and parts of the wall were black from the fire.

"The following day (July 1), I saw police officers going around to ask residents if they had seen someone from CCTV footage, which I believe might be connected to the fire."

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
