SINGAPORE — A blaze early on Sunday (July 3) morning in a Bukit Panjang car park damaged four vehicles and resulted in a man being taken to hospital for burn injuries.

In response to TODAY's queries, the Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said that it received a call for assistance at Block 216 Petir Road on Sunday at about 4am. 

Upon SCDF’s arrival, a car that was parked there was fully engulfed in flames.

Firefighters extinguished the blaze using four compressed air foam jets.

As a result of the fire, one person was taken to the Singapore General Hospital for burn injuries and three other vehicles were damaged.

In a video circulating on social media, bright yellow flames can be seen engulfing a car in a car park, with black smoke billowing from the fire. 

Shouts can be heard in the background and a few seconds later, a man with flames engulfing his body is seen running from the car park towards the nearby void deck of a public housing block.
