A car caught fire on Saturday (Mar. 20) evening along Jalan Sultan.

Pictures and videos uploaded online showed a thick plume of black smoke rising from the burning car, with the car itself engulfed in flames.


Both the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) and the Singapore Police Force (SPF) were present at the scene.

It appears that the area was cordoned off for safety, and the fire was put out relatively quickly.
