De Lijn bus becomes burning inferno

A bus operated by the Flemish local transport company De Lijn was completely gutted by fire on Monday morning. The incident happened in Edegem in Antwerp province.

The driver and his four passengers were able to escape unscathed and could continue their journey on a replacement bus.

The cause of the blaze remains unclear, but is the subject of an investigation.

It is very rare that Belgian buses catch fire like this.
