Water bombers on stand by for bushfire warning

SINGAPORE: Firefighters, ambulances and air ambulance crews were standing by at the airport on Friday for a bushfire warning, as the fire remained under control.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) advised about 7pm that it had no active fires or dangerous conditions in the airport area, and advised residents not to use the airport at night because of the possible flight cancellations.

SCDF’s deputy director General of Operations, Brigadier (Retd) Robert Lai, said authorities were working to control the fire and ensure public safety.

The fire broke out around 4.30pm at a parking lot located in the southwest quadrant of the airport.

No details of the cause were available Friday.

Fire fighters were trying to knock the fire down before moving out to other areas in the parking lot. The fire took out a large part of one car parking lot and a building next to the vehicle park.

The fire appeared to be contained to the area on 카지노 사이트 주소Thursday nig강원 랜드 바카라ht and the SCDF advised the public to leave any unattended vehicles unattended because of possible flights.

Taxis have been allowed back into the terminal building in the morning, but there is no traffic out there after the parking area.

While the plane parking area has been allowed back, the air ambulance and fire services have said that the roads around the main building, and also the car parking lot, are no longer safe to travel on because of the hazard that the airport fire created.
