SINGAPORE (ICIS)--A fire has broken out at an oil tank at Tembusu in Jurong Island, Singapore, a Singapore Civil Defence spokesperson said on Tuesday.

“We are responding to the call now the fire is still ongoing but we do not have any details. We believe that the tank belongs to one of the petrochemical firms there but this has not been fully established,” the spokesperson told ICIS.

Tembusu houses a cluster of power and petrochemical production facilities.

However, no other details about where the fire has broken out were immediately available.
