Michael said: "The traffic was quite slow as we approached the fire."

In response to a Stomp query, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that they responded to a vehicle fire at around 10.50am.

The fire involved items in the rear compartment on the lorry and was extinguished by SCDF using a fire extinguisher and a hose reel.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. 

Stomp understands that the driver refused conveyance to a hospital after being assessed by paramedics.
