A fire broke out a vehicle scrapyard near Teban Gardens on Wednesday afternoon in Singapore. However, no injuries were reported due to the fire.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) said it was informed about the incident that took place at 1 Penjuru Road at about 2.15 pm. Two fire engines, two Red Rhinos, two fire bikes and a support vehicle were immediately dispatched to the scene.

SCDF said the firefighters put out the fire using two water jets. According to reports, the fire involved contents outside a building.

Channel NewsAsia reported that the fire was at a vehicle scrapyard, and two cars and two industrial containers were believed to have caught fire.

A video that was posted online showed the blaze sending thick plumes of smoke into the air. SCDF said investigations are going on to find out the exact cause of the fire.

SBS Transit, the public transport operator, announced on Twitter that two of its bus services, 154 and 130, would skip stops along Jalan Ahmad Ibrahim, Penjuru Road and West Coast Road due to the fire.
