A few motorcyclists were seen stopping to offer their assistance after a car caught on fire on the Pan Island Expressway (PIE) on Mar 23.

Several Stompers alerted Stomp to the incident and shared footage of the car on fire after the Paya Lebar Road exit.

Some people are seen helping to move another car away from the burning vehicle.

"Kudos to the motorcyclists," said one Stomper.

"Please award them."

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force said they were alerted to the fire at 3.40pm.

The fire involved the engine compartment of the car, an SCDF spokesperson said.

It was extinguished by SCDF using two water jets.

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