The police are investigating an “unnatural death” after one person was found dead when an explosive blaze broke out at a sixth-floor HDB flat unit at Block 18 Bedok South Road, yesterday evening.

Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers, who were alerted to the incident at 8.22pm, had to enter the unit forcefully and found a body lying motionless inside the flat after they extinguished the flames with two water jets. An SCDF paramedic pronounced the motionless individual dead, shortly thereafter.

Close to 50 residents were evacuated by the police but no other injuries were reported.

A video capturing the blaze from a distance, that has been trending online, shows several onlookers gathered opposite the block as thick, black smoke can be seen along with the raging fire.
