In the wee hours of Saturday (14 May) morning, TikTok user @shanicelsh shared footage of a vertical column on fire, with the top of the structure appearing slightly distorted.

There also appears to be flaming debris on the ground, which likely came from the burning structure.

According to the TikTok user, the fire took place at 1.30am at an undisclosed location in Serangoon.

The user also shared that the ambulance was on the way at the time of the recording. She additionally expressed her hope that the “mala store person” is alright.
