Fire at Resorts World Sentosa

A fire broke out at the Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) on Wednesday afternoon.

It caused thick black smoke to billow from affected parts of the work site, the Straits Times Online Mobile Print (Stomp) reported.

A Stomp reader who was at the nearby Vivo City shopping mall captured images of the fire and provided the tip-off.

A spokesperson for Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) told Stomp that the incident was caused by a pile of polystyrene foam catching fire.

"The fire was contained and put out by construction workers using fire extinguishers before the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) arrived. There were no injuries or damage to the work site," the spokesperson said.

"SCDF officers who arrived on site deemed it suitable for construction work to resume."

The fire will have no impact on the construction progress, RWS said
