Person BBQ-ed to a crisp at new upper changi rd flat


Lieutenant General

SINGAPORE: One of the family members who lived in a New Upper Changi Road flat where a fire broke out on Wednesday (Mar 9) has died, said Deputy Prime Minister Heng Swee Keat on Thursday.

A family of nine lived in the fourth-storey flat, said Mr Heng, who is also Member of Parliament for East Coast GRC.

The family has since been given a temporary space to stay, he said.

"I visited the family today, and was saddened to hear that one of the family members had passed on in the hospital. My sincere condolences for their loss," said Mr Heng.

Three people were found unconscious in the flat after a "raging" fire on Wednesday afternoon, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF).

One of the occupants, who had self-evacuated with a baby, informed the firefighters that there were still people in the burning unit. Three unconscious people from a room were rescued from the burning flat.

A woman from a neighbouring unit also suffered burn injuries on her shoulder while self-evacuating.
