Fire at Changi T2 leaves thousands stranded

A  fire which broke out in a room holding air-conditioning equipment led to an unprecedented evacuation at Changi Airport Terminal 2 (T2) on Tuesday (16 May 2017), with thousands of passengers stranded affecting about 40 flights from at least 13 airlines were affected.

The fire, which the SCDF described as “small”, was put out in about an hour by firefighters. However, the terminal remained closed, partly due to the lingering smoke from the fire. Bus services to the airport were also affected.

According to Changi Airport officials, the fire alarm was activated at about 5.40pm due to "smoke coming through the air vents".
