A car caught fire at the Basement 2 level of the carpark at Jem shopping mall yesterday afternoon. 

No one was injured.

Stomper Ivan, who was there, said that the car had already been blocked off and that the area was "very smoky".

In response to media queries, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) told Stomp that they were first alerted to the fire at about 12.40pm.

The fire involved the engine compartment of the car.

It was quickly put out by the SCDF with a hose reel.
