Explosion at Bishan Carpark and other fires in the past 2 weeks 2022


 

A fiery explosion occur in Bishan last evening.

A TikTok User y'ling_ had posted a video of a fire in the carpark at Bishan.



Apparently, a motorcycle had caught fire and as the fire rages, there was a loud boom and a mushroom cloud of fire and smoke.



The video ended as the fire spread to a parked car closest to the scene. 


While there are no further updates that the fire is resolved, given the situation, we are sure that it is under control.

You can watch the full video here

Given the spate of fires, one has to be more cautious. Some of the fires were reported to be the results of charging e-bikes and laptops overnight. Given the circumstances, it is best not to charge such devices overnight or when you are out of the house.

Stay safe everyone!
