A fully loaded luxury bus belonging to Young Shall Grow Motors commuting passengers from Enugu to Lagos, caught fire earlier Thursday at the Igbariam axis of the Enugu-Onitsha express way.
According to some of the passengers who spoke to newsmen, the fire started from an overheated tyre.
They narrated how the driver stopped to check which of the tyres, just for the vehicle to get engulfed by fire.
Effort by officials of the Federal Road Safety Corps and other good spirited individuals to put out the fire was in vain as the whole bus was razed.
All the passengers escaped with their luggage and no life was lost.
The incident caused a temporary commotion on the highway, with private and commercial vehicles scampering to safety.
