A car caught fire along Balestier Road on Thursday afternoon (May 24).

Stomper Abhijit, a resident in the area, contributed photos showing Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers at the scene.

He said: "Firemen did their best to subdue the fire, but it took serious effort and additional support was called upon.

"The location is exactly opposite Balestier Towers on Balestier Road.

"Traffic was halted and diverted for the time-being."

In response to a Stomp query, the SCDF said it was alerted to the fire at around 12.20pm.

No one was injured.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
