A truck burst into flames outside Novena Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon (June 9).

Stomper Randy alerted Stomp to a video of the incident that was posted on Facebook.

According to the post, the vehicle was a rubbish truck.

Plumes of smoke are seen rising from the truck as Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) officers work to extinguish the flames.

In response to a Stomp query, the SCDF said it was alerted to a fire at 10 Sinaran Drive at about 12.50pm.

"The fire involved the rear compartment of a truck," an SCDF spokesman said.

"SCDF extinguished the fire using a water jet."

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