A fire broke out in the early morning of Mar. 28 at a recycling and waste management company in Kranji.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said in a Facebook post that they responded to a fire at 11 Kranji Crescent at about 2:25am.

They added that 25 people had already evacuated before their arrival and there were no reported injuries.

Flames were engulfing waste materials

When SCDF arrived, flames were engulfing waste materials in the sorting and processing area of the premises, measuring 400 metres square, SCDF wrote.

A Google search showed that the location is occupied by a company called Wah and Hua Private Limited.

A video sent by a Mothership reader showed huge flames blazing with smoke billowing against the sky.
