Many STOMPers sent in emails showing an SMRT bus 913 on fire near Woodlands Circle last night (July 15) at around 11pm.
STOMPer Elvin said:
"The bus exploded near Woodlands MRT.
"It was pretty crazy and dramatic as residents all got out of their houses to look, although the firemen came very quickly to put out the fire.
"I don't think anyone was hurt.
"I've never seen anything like this."
STOMPer Inana said:
"Luckily, there weren't any passengers.
"SMRT should do something as the public would feel insecure to ride in public transport in the future."

"The bus driver didn't know the bus was on fire until someone pointed it out."
