Police spokesperson Noloyiso Rwexana said there were 66 passengers on the bus that was travelling from Harare to South Africa. The fire started at around 7am, injuring five passengers.

Unlike the arson attacks on several MyCiTi buses in Cape Town the last few months, no foul play is suspected, police said.

Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson Theo Layne said the bus was gutted in the blaze.

“The fire was extinguished and the firefighters assisted with the clean-up operation,” he said.

Golden Arrow spokesperson Bronwen Dyke-Beyer said they would launch an investigation into the incident as the cause of the fire is still unknown.
