Fire at Orchard Central

SINGAPORE - A shop in Orchard Central caught fire around 11pm on Thursday.

The New Paper received a tip-off about the blaze after a reader saw smoke coming out of a Quiksilver outlet.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force put out the fire and cordoned off the area.

Said Mr Baskaran, 36, a construction worker from a nearby site: "There was smoke coming out, a lot of people started crowding around. But it was very well managed, there wasn't any panic."
