"The fire involved a car and the front of a shophouse. SCDF extinguished the fire with three water jets and one compressed air foam backpack.

Five people were pronounced dead at the scene and one sent to SGH with burn injuries.

ST understands that the five who died were in the car when the accident happened.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

It looks like a coupe.. if it was drunk driving and the car hits the shop at high speed then the front two might be dead or unconscious...then the rear passengers died a rather horrific death being unable to open the doors and get out... nasty 

RIP

Looks like a pub from google maps.

Probably it was speeding and collided into the pub, which broke the alcohol bottles and ignited the alcohol.

Yeah probably racing or speeding. I don't like to be in the rear seats of a coupe. Or cars with electronic door release (a bad recent trend) for this reason.

My friend crashed his BMW E46 head-on more than 15 years ago.

The car unlocked 4 doors, switch on the hazard light and turn off the engine.

A correction based on other posting. The shophouse was already vacated.
