SCDF investigating cause of car catching fire on SLE
SINGAPORE: The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) is investigating the cause of a car catching fire on the Seletar Expressway (SLE) on Saturday (Dec 10).
A video from a Channel NewsAsia viewer showed flames and black smoke billowing from the car, which was in the right-most lane of the expressway near the Lentor exit in the direction of Woodlands. It appeared to have caused a traffic jam in the two adjacent lanes.
The SCDF said it received an alert for assistance along the SLE before the Lentor exit at about 12.50pm. It dispatched two fire engines, a fire bike and one ambulance.
The fire was extinguished by SCDF using a compressed air foam jet.
Two men in their early 20s were conveyed to Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, and both are in stable condition, SCDF added.
