Rooftop fire, workers evacuated

Posted by jtsmyth8 on November 22, 2007

A fire broke out on Wednesday morning on the rooftop of the former Specialist Centre/Phoenix Hotel in Orchard Road, which is being demolished. A construction project manager spotted the fire coming from a cooling tower on the rooftop of the six-storey building, next to the Orchard Central building which is under construction.

Thick smoke billowed from the fire site, forcing the evacuation of over 50 workers on the rooftop and in other parts of the building. Over at the adjacent Orchard Central building site, another 100 workers were also evacuated to across the road. No one was hurt. (story)
