If you use the CTE to get home every weekday, you might have been caught in a massive jam yesterday (9 Feb 2018).
Yesterday, at around 5:20 p.m., a van caught fire near the Outram exit on the CTE.
That stretch of CTE is not underground.
The fire was put out swiftly by fire-fighters who got to the scene from the opposite direction.
Images show that the fire started in the bonnet of the van and slowly spread to the entire van.
It got so strong that even the wall beside it was badly burned. According to someone living nearby, he could even hear some “explosions”.
According to the SCDF, they put out the fire within ten minutes.
Despite the large fire, no one was injured.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Just a few weeks back, a car burst into flames on a road leading to PIE, and it was understood that it caught fire after crashing against a railing.
Back then, the SCDF reminded drivers to do these to prevent any vehicle fires:
- Service their vehicles regularly at authorised vehicle workshops.
- Ensure that the vehicle’s electrical, engine and fuel systems are checked for any defects during servicing.
- Outside of scheduled servicing period, owners are encouraged to conduct visual checks for any sign of oil leakage.
Now, if you’re an owner of a vehicle and haven’t been servicing your vehicle for a while because it “works okay”, this incident should serve as a reminder.
