A fire broke out at a My Briyani House restaurant kitchen in The Seletar Mall, located in Sengkang, this morning (Dec 3) at about 7.40am.

A Stomper, who is a Sengkang resident, received pictures of the incident from a neighbour and sent them to Stomp.

In the pictures she sent, thick grey smoke can be seen billowing out of the vents, which are located at the top of the building.

The Stomper said that she heard sirens blaring, but did not see the smoke as she was rushing to get ready for work.

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said: "SCDF was alerted to an incident at The Seletar Mall at about 7.40am.

"Fire involving the contents of a kitchen was extinguished by sprinklers prior to SCDF's arrival."

In response to a Stomp query, a spokesman of The Seletar Mall said: "Security observed smoke coming out of My Briyani House at approximately 7.40am this morning and immediately alerted Fire Command Centre and SCDF."

According to the spokesman, the fire was put out in 10 minutes and there were no reported injuries.

"The actual cause of the fire is still being confirmed. However, the Police has concluded their preliminary investigation and at the moment, no foul play is suspected," he added.
