Someone—or some people—celebrated Deepavali at Yishun with fireworks very early on the morning of Wednesday, November 7. At around 3:30 am, netizens reported seeing fireworks set off, and even posted videos of the sparklers.

Earlier in the day, fireworks had been lit at Race Course Road in Little India. Police rushing to the scene are spotted towards the end of videos posted.

Two men, ages 48 and 29, have been arrested for the incident, since the possession and setting off of fireworks is illegal, and conviction can result in as much as two years jail time, caning, or a fine of S $2,000 to S$ 10,000, under the Dangerous Fireworks Act.

Last year, three men who set off fireworks in Yishun were arrested.
