Members of the public rallied to extinguish a fire that had broken out at a unit on the twelfth floor of Block 562 Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 yesterday (Feb 6) at around 9pm.

Stomper Helen, who lives at the block opposite Block 562, heard nearby residents shouting.

"I thought it was a fight but when I looked outside, it was a fire," she said.

She saw police and Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers at the scene.

In response to Stomp's media queries, an SCDF spokesman said that they were alerted to the fire incident at about 9pm.

"The fire was extinguished by members of the public using buckets of water prior to SCDF's arrival," he said.

No injuries were reported.
