A car caught fire while queueing to enter Malaysia via Woodlands Checkpoint on Wednesday morning (Dec 21).

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said they were alerted to the fire at 21 Woodlands Checkpoint at 7.10am.

"The fire involved the engine compartment of a car," an SCDF spokesman said.

"SCDF extinguished the fire using a compressed air foam backpack and a hose reel."

There were no reported injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
