Samsung might be planning to leave the notorious Note 7 debacle behind with the release of its new Galaxy S8 flagship, but it seems the company is not done dealing with fire, just yet.
Channel News Asia reports a Samsung Experience Store in Singapore has caught flames in the early hours of Tuesday morning on March 28. The incident occurred in a shopping mall in the North-East part of the country, causing surrounding shops to temporarily close doors for safety reasons.
In a statement released in the aftermath of the fire, Samsung said the situation has since been resolved and that no customers or employees have been injured as a result of the incident. Unfortunately, it remains unclear what caused the fire.
“We are currently assessing the property damage and working closely with the authorities to determine the cause of the fire. The store will remain temporarily closed during this period. We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused,” Samsung commented.
According to the report, the fire was swiftly put out by the mall’s sprinkler system and water jets.
The company is slated to unveil its new Galaxy S8 flagship device tomorrow on March 29, Hopefully without any more unplanned fireworks.
