Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers have put out a fire which broke out at Marriott Tang Plaza Hotel on Tuesday morning (March 15). 

SCDF said in a statement that it was alerted to the fire at around 9.10am and dispatched a firefighting team to the scene.

A security staff first spotted the fire outside the third storey roof of the building and alerted the premises' Fire Command Centre, which deployed its Company Emergency Response Team (CERT) for initial firefighting operations.

SCDF officers put out the fire within 20 minutes.

About 100 people self-evacuated from the building before SCDF's arrival, and no injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
