Van burnt by recycling bin on fire in separate incident

A van in Bukit Batok Street 33 was burnt on Sep. 18 at around 1am, after the recycling bin beside it was on fire.

The cause of the blaze is unknown, but Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) was alerted to the fire and personnel extinguished it using one compressed air foam backpack and one hosereel.

A plausible reason for the bin fires could be due to discarded battery or electronic goods inside catching fire.
