Well done! Cleaners help to extinguish fire at Woodlands carpark before firemen arrive

Three cleaners heroically help put out a fire at the multi-storey carpark of Woodlands Block 505 today (May 30) at around 8am.

Stomper NS alerted Stomp to what happened and sent Stomp a video showing the cleaners in action.

In the video, a cleaner in a white top can be seen spraying water on a smoking car. There were no visible flames when the video was filmed.

In a telephone interview, the Stomper said a woman had earlier tried to start the car. 

Smoke then started coming out of her car and her bonnet was engulfed in flames after that.

The three cleaners then stepped in to put out the fire.

Said the Stomper with regard to what happened:

"Our commendable cleaners put out the fire with a hose. 

"Kudos to the three cleaners who responded fast while waiting for the firefighters. 

"The fire would have grown bigger and perhaps spread if it wasn't for their bravery.

"There was also a possibility of the car exploding, but the cleaners still stepped forward.

"We are very proud of these men."
