Singapore – A white Porsche Carrera was spotted on fire at a Housing and Development Board (HDB) carpark. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) quickly addressed the incident and managed to put out the fire in time.
Facebook page SG Road Vigilante – SGRV also shared the footage, noting the SCDF had arrived within 15 minutes.
In one of Mr Tan’s videos, the Porsche could be seen spewing smoke, its bonnet and passenger-side door opened.
Three men were on standby at the side, one of them running towards the vehicle with a handheld fire extinguisher. It is unclear if they were helpful bystanders or were connected to the car on fire.
The man with the extinguisher points the nozzle at the vehicle and attempts to put out the fire, directing the mixture underneath the rear wheel side.
Soon after, a flame was spotted building at the car’s interior, resulting in more smoke emission. Unfortunately, the man’s was unable to put out the fire.
Onlookers could be heard expressing their concern.
Meanwhile, one of the men nearby approaches the vehicle with his small extinguisher but quickly steps back, possibly sensing the danger.
The fire eventually spread and was seen blazing from the open passenger door. The individuals recording the scene noted, “it was getting worse.”
In another video, an SCDF fire truck was spotted arriving at the scene. Within a minute, they were able to control the fire using a water jet.
No injuries were reported./TISG
