    Home fires more often now due to PMDs?

    180 people evacuated after Hougang condo e-bike fire on second day of Chinese New Year holiday SINGAPORE - A fire broke out in a Hougang condominium unit in the early hours on the second day of the Chinese New Year celebrations on Sunday (Jan 26). The fire, which is linked to an electric bicycle, set ablaze a unit at 5 Buangkok Green and about 180 residents self-evacuated before Singapore Civil Defence Force officers arrived, SCDF said in a Facebook post on Sunday. SCDF added that two people were assessed by a paramedic for superficial burns and difficulty in breathing but both of them refused to be taken to the hospital. SCDF said that it responded to the fire at 5.50am and preliminary investigations found that the fire started in a bedroom where an e-bicycle battery was being charged. SCDF officers put out the fire using a water jet. SCDF also reminded the public on how to prevent fires due to personal mobility devices or power-assisted bicycles, with an infographic on fire safety tips on their Facebook page. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/180-people-evacuated-after-hougang-condo-fire-on-second-day-of-chinese-new-year-holiday?utm_medium=Social&utm_campaign=STFB&utm_source=Facebook#Echobox=1580028564

The New York Times reported Boeing is reviewing whether two bundles of wiring are too close together, which could lead to a short circuit and potentially result in a crash if pilots did not respond appropriately Boeing is currently working to design separating the wiring bundles if necessary and conducting extensive analysis to establish if the electrical fault could occur in a real-world scenario, a company official said. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/business/boeing--faa-reviewing-wiring-issue-on-grounded-737-max-12236134
