SMRT taxi catches fire outside JCube shopping mall
An SMRT taxi caught fire on Tuesday evening in front of Block 131 Jurong Gateway Road.
The Singapore Civil Defence Force received a call at 7.59pm and dispatched one fire engine, one Red Rhino, and two fire bikes.
Upon arrival, the taxi's engine compartment was in flames, and the fire was extinguished within ten minutes.
The 30-year-old cab driver, who only wanted to be known as Mr Yusri, said that he had just dropped off a passenger at the JCube taxi stand, when other drivers started to honk at him. He pulled over beside a bus stop in front of Block 131, about 200 metres away from the JCube shopping mall.
