SINGAPORE: A fire broke out at Maple Bear pre-school in Pasir Panjang on Tuesday evening (Aug 10).

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was alerted to a fire at 243 Pasir Panjang Road at about 7pm on Tuesday.

"SCDF conducted forced entry into the premises. No one was in the premises at the time of the fire," said the agency.

The fire which involved "contents" in the pre-school was "largely confined to the front portion of the premises", SCDF added.
