SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)
A San Francisco Municipal Railway bus caught fire in the city’s Outer Richmond neighborhood Friday morning, a Muni spokesman said.
The fire was reported at 6:46 a.m. in the engine of a 38-Geary bus parked at Point Lobos Avenue and 48th Avenue near Lands End, Muni spokesman Paul Rose said.
The fire damaged the left rear side of the bus and was extinguished a couple of minutes later, Rose said.
Rose said the bus driver and one passenger were on board at the time but were not injured.
The bus has since been towed back to a Muni maintenance yard and investigators will look at the vehicle’s surveillance video to try to figure out what caused the fire, he said.
