A van caught fire along Bartley Road, outside Maris Stella High School on Monday afternoon (Feb 14).

Stomper Francis alerted Stomp to the incident and shared a photo of the van engulfed in flames.

In response to a Stomp query, the SCDF said they were alerted to the fire at 5.50pm.

"The fire involved the engine compartment of a van," an SCDF spokesman said.

The fire was extinguished by SCDF using a hosereel and a compressed air foam backpack.

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

Just last month, a Mercedes-Benz caught fire at the same location.

The driver and her son narrowly escaped.
