BANGKOK – A Samsung outlet in Singapore caught fire Wednesday morning, just a day before the giant electronic company’s launch of its much-anticipated Galaxy S8.
As per Tribune reports, the fire broke out at the storeroom of Samsung Experience Store in AMK Hub in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Although the blaze was quickly put out by water sprinklers and no one was hurt, it caused surrounding stores in the shopping mall to temporarily close for safety reasons and cleaning. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
Confirming the incident, a Samsung rep told Mashable via email, “We are currently assessing the property damage and working closely with the authorities to determine the cause of the fire.” He added that the store will remain temporarily closed during this period and regretted any inconvenience caused by the incident.
