Cars in Singapore are expensive. Watch this and you’d understand:
And in this case, $70,000 literally went up in flames, when a newly-bought secondhand car caught on fire while parked outside Old Airport Road’s food court.
The worst part? The owner literally only bought the car 10 days ago.
Car Starts Smoking, Bursts into Flames
According to Shin Min Daily News, a car was parked in the open-air carpark outside Old Airport Road Food Centre on 12 August afternoon, when its engine started smoking.
The owner, 52-year-old Mr Xie, had parked the car there while he went to eat lunch. He said that he saw smoke coming out of a car after he finished his meal, only to look more closely and realise that it was his car.
The car then burst into flames after smoking for a while.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force arrived, and managed to put out the fire with a hosereel. Thankfully, nobody was injured.
Car Turned Into Scrap Metal After Owning It For 10 Days
The car was burnt into a crisp, becoming scrap metal after the fire.
Mr Xie shared that he had bought this second-hand car for $70,000 on 3 August. The car was five years old when it was sold to the dealer by the previous owner.
In the 10 days that he owned it, he didn’t even use it much since he went overseas. His wife had only driven it out to buy groceries.
Additionally, there was no sign of any issues with the car before the incident, so Mr Xie has no idea why the car went up in flames. Thankfully, he was not in the vehicle when it started acting up.
The SCDF is currently investigating the cause of the fire.
