An Audi car went up in flames along the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) towards Tuas before Jurong Town Hall exit on Wednesday (Jan 6).

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted to the fire at about 9.55pm.

"We extinguished the fire using two compressed air foam backpacks and one water jet," said the SCDF spokesman.

There were no reported injuries.

Photos of the fire posted on Singapore Roads Accident's Facebook page show SCDF officers extinguishing the fire as white smoke billows into the sky.

According to the Facebook caption, the exact model of the car is said to be an Audi R8.

Another photo shows a man standing at a distance from the car and holding a flashlight as the car goes up in flames.

A circulated video of the incident was also posted on Complaint Singapore's YouTube page, which appears to be taken from the passenger seat of a car passing by.

In the video, another man is seen waving a flashlight to warn oncoming cars of the fire ahead as the video pans to the car that is engulfed in flames.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
