Marina Bay Suites Fire – Two Charred Bodies Found

Two die in Marina Bay Suites fire

Two charred bodies were discovered at the scene of a fire on the 65th floor of the Marina Bay Suites condominium on Monday night.

According to the Singapore Civil Defence Force and police, calls for help came in at 10:11pm, and SCDF responders found “heavy smoke and intense heat” filling several upper floors of the 66-storey building.

The two bodies were found inside the opening of the service lift on the 65th floor, said the SCDF. The lift lobby at that level was fully engulfed in flames and the fire involved “contents believed to be renovation materials”, SCDF added. The spokesperson also noted that the fire was confined to the service corridor and lift area.

Parent company Raffles Quay Asset Management told Yahoo Singapore not many residents have moved into the condominium yet, as it had only just obtained its temporary occupation permit last year.  Checks with the condominium developer’s sales team showed that there are between 10 and 20 units left for sale, out of the 221 available.

The SCDF said several of the residents had evacuated the building before the authorities arrived, while it assisted “a handful” of residents who were at and above the 53rd floor of the building.
“All residents were allowed to return to their units when the situation was ascertained to be safe,” said the SCDF. Both police and the SCDF are investigating the cause of the fire.
