Explosion in Singapore power building

Posted by jtsmyth8 on July 2, 2008

4 workers were injured in a flash fire which broke out at a Singapore Power substation on Somerset Road on Wednesday morning.

One worker suffered second degree burns on his hands and legs, while the others came down with smoke inhalation. They were taken to Singapore General Hospital.

The fire triggered a 20-minute power outage in the vicinity, and prompted mass evacuation of office workers in several buildings in the area.

In a statement shortly after the incident, SP PowerGrid said the fire occured at 10.07am at a substation.

Office workers in the area heard a loud explosion, followed by black smokes rising from the building. (story)
