Carpark fire damages 6 cars

SINGAPORE - Six cars were damaged when a fire broke out at a multi-storey carpark at Woodlands Drive 50 early on Wednesday morning.

No one was hurt in the blaze, which happened at around 3.30am, according to the Shin Min Daily News. The fire had reportedly started from a white Toyota and spread to five other vehicles.

The owner of the Toyota told the paper that he sent his 31/2-year-old car for regular maintenance, and said that the fire could have been a case of arson. The carpark had been hit by a series of vandalism incidents last year, he added.

Another car owner said he had rushed to the scene, but as the fire was too big, he could only watch as the flames engulfed his vehicle. The Singapore Civil Defence Force said it was notified of the fire at 3.31am. It is investigating the incident.
