A personal mobility device (PMD) burst into flames at the junction of Gateway Drive and Boon Lay Way in Jurong on Tuesday morning (Nov 19).

Stomper Gary alerted Stomp to the incident and shared a photo he took of the scene.

"This Foodpanda delivery guy's PMD exploded," he said.

"It caught fire and started shooting sparks outside Westgate shopping mall."

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it responded to the fire at about 12.20pm.

"The fire was extinguished by a member of the public using an extinguisher prior to SCDF's arrival," an SCDF spokesman said.

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