ksrtc hydBengaluru: As many as 32 passengers had a narrow escape when the Hyderabad-bound KSRTC Airavat bus from Bengaluru caught fire near Rani Circle in Devanahalli on the outskirts of the city on Wednesday night. The alert passengers, who detected smoke and fire, alerted the driver.

The driver stopped the bus immediately and evacuated all the passengers. Tension prevailed at the spot for a while, which also affected traffic.

The bus (bearing registration KA-57-F-212) was on the way to Hyderabad when the fire broke out at around 10.30 pm near the engine in the rear compartment of the bus.

The exact cause for the accident is yet to be ascertained. The fire personnel, along with two fire tenders, rushed to the spot and doused the fire. Preliminary investigations also revealed the possibility that the engine was not damaged at all due to the fire, as within an hour, the bus driver resumed the journey in the same bus with the passengers.

The scare among the passengers was mainly due to recent accidents of buses burning due to on board fire, some of which have even claimed the lives of passengers.
