A car suddenly caught fire along Bukit Batok East Ave 6, causing severe traffic jam in that area for about 30 minutes. Channel 8 News reported that a loud explosion was heard before the fire started, and that gasoline was leaking from the burning car.
Witnesses described the fire as being “scary”.

Kudos to SCDF !!!

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) responded quickly to put out the raging fire. The firemen initially used water to put out the fire. Realising eventually that water is not going to put out fire caused by derivatives of crude oil like petrol, engine oil and power-steering fluid, the fire-fighters switched to a foam-based extinguisher to bring the fire under control.
SCDF said that a fire truck, a red rhino and two motorcycles were dispatched to the site of the fire and that water jets and compressed air foam were used put the fire out.
Witnesses said a lone fireman bravely tried to put out the fire before the fire truck arrived.
SCDF said that no one was injured in the accident and that it is still investigating the cause of the fire.
