'Small fire' at Fitness First's Marina Bay Financial Centre outlet

SINGAPORE - A fire broke out at health club Fitness First Platinum, located on the 16th floor of the Marina Bay Financial Centre (MBFC) Tower 3, this afternoon.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they received a call at 12.41pm regarding the "small fire", which originated in the women's sauna area and involved a heating element.

Two fire engines, a Red Rhino, two fire bikes, an ambulance and three support vehicles were despatched to the scene, but the fire had been extinguished by the health club's sprinkler system prior to the SCDF's arrival.

About 40 people were self-evacuated and no one was injured in the incident.

Fitness First Singapore said on its Facebook page at around 5pm that the outlet will remain closed until tomorrow, while the women's sauna room will be closed until further notice.
