Natural gas-bus goes up in flames because of engine-problem

Post by BigBlockMopar » Tue Oct 30, 2012 6:40 pm

In an adjacent town a public transport bus burned to the ground yesterday.
The news-site reports that the busdriver, during one of his rounds, noticed a small fire at the rear of the bus where the engine is located. Shortly after the 6 passengers where evacuated out the bus, the fire climbed to the roof of the bus, where the NG-tanks are located.
Because of a relieve valve opening up, upto 50 feet of flames shot out to the side of the bus. No explosions and no-one got hurt.
