SINGAPORE: A fire broke out at an industrial estate in Defu Lane early Wednesday morning (Apr 3), just hours after a blaze in Eunos.

The industrial estate is not far from Paya Lebar Air Base and the Kovan residential area.

A message urging people to stay away from the area was sent to SGSecure mobile app users, as well as M1, StarHub and Singtel mobile subscribers within the immediate vicinity of the fire.

This was the second industrial fire in a night. The first broke out at about 9pm on Tuesday at Eunos Avenue 6, which is about 5km from the Defu Lane industrial estate.
