Explosions were heard as a power-assisted bike (PAB) caught fire at 15 Choa Chu Kang Avenue 4 on Friday morning (Jan 3).
Stomper Abdullah contributed a video of the incident.
In the video, the e-bike can be seen in an upright position as flames engulf it.
Explosions can be heard as the fire rages and the e-bike then falls onto the ground.
An SMRT staff can then be seen putting out the fire with a fire extinguisher.
