A fire broke out at the headquarters of pest control company Rentokil Initial Singapore in MacPherson on Friday morning (21 Dec 2018), with dense grey smoke seen billowing from the building even from hundreds of metres away.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) had been alerted to the fire at 16 Jalan Mesin.
