Fire broke out at the junction of Punggol Waterway and Punggol Road, resulting in a blaze the size of a football field, said the Singapore Civil Defence Force, which received a call at about 5.20pm. Two fire engines, a Red Rhino and a support vehicle were sent there. No one was injured, and the fire was put out before 6.45pm. Punggol 17th Avenue resident Mr Tan Xingwen said he and his family had been driving out for dinner when they were caught in a jam on Punggol Road. “We saw a big brush fire beside the road, and saw smoke all over the place,” said the 29-year-old accountant. In Jurong East, a grass patch caught fire near the IMM mall at about lunchtime, said a contributor to citizen-journalism website Stomp. The current bout of dry weather has led to more vegetation fires this year. Last Thursday evening, a fire broke out in a forested area at Sunset Way, while in January, there were vegetation fires at Clementi Avenue 6 and Commonwealth Drive.
