Geylang bike shop catches fire
An electric bike shop in Geylang caught fire on Wednesday evening (Oct 7).
Eyewitnesses said they heard two explosions coming from the shop at about 9pm.
The shophouse is between Lorong 15 Geylang and Lorong 13 Geylang.
No one was hurt.
When The New Paper visited the scene at about 9.30pm, firefighters could be seen dousing the shophouse with jets of water.
The area was cordoned off by police officers and a strong burnt smell permeated the air.
The shop owner said he was at home when he received a call that his shop was on fire. He said most of his bikes were damaged.
