Two Dead In Fire At House On Parry Avenue

Two bodies were found dead on the second floor of a burning house after a fire broke out today (June 9) at No 6A Parry Avenue.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was alerted of the incident at about 3am and deployed three fire engines, three ambulances, three red rhino and six support vehicles.

Upon arrival, the fire was already raging and had engulfed the entire house, with the fire penetrating through the roof, said the SCDF in a statement.

A total of five casualties were conveyed to the hospital for smoke inhalation. One firefighter was also conveyed to the hospital for heat exhaustion.

SCDF aided two occupants, which included an elderly man out of the house and six occupants had already self-evacuated prior to SCDF’s arrival.

Four water jets were used to penetrate the burning house and an additional two water jets were deployed to prevent the fire from spreading to the adjacent units.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
