 At least 47 passengers escaped unhurt after a Mombasa-bound bus caught fire on Wednesday morning.

The bus belonging to Simba Coach Company went up in flames at 4.00am at Kambu in Kibwezi sub-county.

REAR TYRES

Area OCPD Ben Changulo said the bus’ rear tyres caught fire, which quickly spread out, reducing the bus to ashes.

Mr Changulo said the passengers managed to evacuate their luggage before the entire burst into flames.

The cause of the fire was not immediately established, and police are investigating the incident.
