A fire broke out at 3 Phillip Street on Wednesday morning (Jan 23).

Stomper Roger alerted Stomp to the fire and shared photos he took at the scene.

He told Stomp that he was making a transaction at a nearby ATM when he could smell something burning.

"I saw smoke and I walked a little closer to see what was happening," he said.

"I then saw the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) had arrived at the scene."

In response to a Stomp media query, SCDF said that it responded to a fire incident at 3 Phillip Street at about 10.15am.

"The fire was extinguished by SCDF using a hose reel," a spokesman said.

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