An owner of a manufacturing firm, which has a unit in the affected industrial block, was at the scene. She told CNA that she was anxiously waiting for updates.

When she arrived at the industrial area at around 9.30pm, the fire had not affected her unit but appeared to be “spreading fast”, she said.

The area around the affected block was soon cordoned off at about 9.45pm.

The owner, who only wished to be known as Ms Lin, said she was “very worried” about the fire as the units in the industrial block comprise manufacturing firms and storage spaces of various wooden products, making the block “very flammable”.

“All my goods are in there. I just want to understand the situation right now,” she said.

As of midnight, firefighters remained at the scene and smoke was still rising from the affected units.
