A fire broke out at Maple Bear pre-school in Pasir Panjang on Tuesday evening (Aug 10).

Several Stompers alerted Stomp to the incident and shared photos and videos of smoke coming from the pre-school.

In one photo, flames can be seen at the front of the school.

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted to a fire at 243 Pasir Panjang Road at about 7pm.

"SCDF conducted forced entry into the premises," an SCDF spokesman said.

"No one was in the premises at the time of the fire.

"The fire which involved contents of a pre-school was largely confined to the front portion of the premises.

"The fire was extinguished by SCDF using two water jets."

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
