Stomper Alvin came across Singapore Civil Defence Force officers putting out an e-scooter that had caught fire at Serangoon Central on Nov 25.

He told Stomp:

"I was on the way home, about 200m away from the junction when I heard two loud 'popping' sounds at around 12.45pm."

He later went past the traffic junction at around 1.35pm near NEX shopping centre and saw several firemen extinguishing an e-scooter that had caught fire.

The Stomper suspected that the scooter belonged to a FoodPanda delivery driver as there was one nearby.

In response to media queries, an SCDF spokesperson told Stomp, "SCDF was alerted at around 1.20pm at the junction of Serangoon Central and Upper Serangoon Road.

"The fire involved an e-scooter which was extinguished using a compressed air foam backpack and a fire extinguisher."

"No one was injured."
