750 Yishun Ave 5: Bus Catches Fire But Passengers Reluctant to Alight


Sri Shanker was driving a 42-seater-bus headed for Malaysia when he saw smoke coming up from the rear of his vehicle. He stopped and told his six passengers to alight, but amazingly, the oblivious commuters were reluctant to move and even questioned his decision. Shortly after alighting, the bus catches fire, but the curious passengers remained in the vicinity and reportedly gathered around the bus.

The 42-year-old then tried to put it out with a lone fire extinguisher, but unsurprisingly failed as the bus became engulfed in thick, black smoke. The firefighters arrived and eventually subdued the fire with the power of two water jets.


No one was injured, although the bus was utterly destroyed.
