Personal Mobility Devices (PMDs) has been hitting the headlines recently, all for the wrong reason.
They have this irritating tendency to burst into fire when they’re recharging.
Earlier this year, an e-bike broke out into a fire at Toa Payoh Lor 1 on the first floor of Blk 103.
Luckily, an off-duty SCDF officer was at the scene and managed to put out the fire. A Chinese man was sent to Tan Tock Seng Hospital for smoke inhalation.
Then a couple of months later on Sep 2018, another e-scooter caught fire at Punggol. A PMD was left charging in the kitchen when it caught on fire.
Thankfully this time, there were no injuries reported and the fire was quickly extinguished.
But these two incidents have one thing in common: the fires were caused by the battery pack of the PMDs.
And now, just one month after the latest incident, yet another incident has happened again.
This Time, A PMD Caught Fire in Tampines
On 9 Oct at about 5.15 pm, a fire broke out in a flat at Blk 240 Tampines St 21.
It was revealed that the fire originated from the battery pack of an e-scooter which was left to charge in the living room.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
