Thankfully the driver of this bus reacted quickly and got everyone off safely! No reported injuries.
The double-decker OC Transpo bus had dozens of people on board when it caught fire earlier this morning. The bus was servicing Route 222, running from Vars to downtown Ottawa.
It happened on Piperville Road, between Anderson Road and Farmers Way in southeast Ottawa just before 7AM. The cause is still not confirmed but one passenger says “We heard an explosion, and we assumed that it was a tire that exploded. And then there was some smoke that started coming out from the back end of the bus,” according to her interview with Radio-Canada.
