Bus gutted after engine fire
This was the state of a tourist bus after it caught fire on the TF-5 in the north of Tenerife.
Firemen based in the parks of La Laguna and Santa Cruz intervened in the incident at 10pm at the height of Los Rodeos.
They were alerted after the 112 emergency control centre received a call about the fire in the back of the bus.
Three fire units rushed to the location and found the flames which had originated specifically in the motor of the vehicle had advanced through the interior to affect the bus practically in its entirety. They also had to clean the road.
The Civil Guard and Canary Emergency Service also attended.
The fire service’s official report did not specify if there had been anyone on board.
