Bus catches fire along Edsa
MANILA, Philippines—A First North Luzon Transit bus caught fire along Epifanio delos Santos Avenue (Edsa) in Quezon City on Saturday afternoon, the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA ) said.
MMDA in a Twitter post said the bus caught fire along the northbound lane of Edsa-P. Tuazon due to an electrical problem.
Lolita Pamplona of the MMDA Metrobase said the bus, with plate number CWW 438, caught fire around 4:21 p.m. but fire out was declared shortly before 5 p.m.
Pamplona said no one was reported injured in the accident.
She, however, warned motorists of heavy traffic along Edsa particularly in the Cubao area.
