Fire at Tanglin police HQ
Smoke billowed out of the Tanglin Police Divisional Headquarters at Kampong Java Road at around 9pm yesterday.
A fire on the seventh storey was put out using a water hose within 15 minutes, said a Singapore Civil Defence Force spokesman.
Residents living in a row of terrace houses next to the building said they saw several emergency vehicles with their sirens and lights on, but they were not told to evacuate.
At around 11pm, staff were seen combing the floor with torches while the building's power was cut.
No one was injured. The cause of the fire is being investigated.
