Massive fire breaks out at Chinatown coffeeshop


A massive blaze engulfed a Chinatown coffeeshop earlier today. The fire, which erupted at 120 Neil Road, caused thick smoke to spew out the building located at the junction of Neil Road and Keong Saik Road.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) reported that at least two individuals in the vicinity complained of breathlessness but refused to be conveyed to the hospital. SCDF firefighters put out the flames with the use of three water jets.

The cause of the fire remains unknown. Investigations are ongoing.
