ĐÀ NẴNG — A bus carrying 29 foreign tourists travelling from Huế to Hội An city caught fire while passing Hải Vân Pass in the central city at noon on Thursday, February 15.

All the tourists, driver and co-driver escaped to safety from the bus. The Đà Nẵng city’s traffic police said the fire on the bus (number 43B-025.31) from Đà Nẵng erupted in the engine at the rear.

A team of 30 firemen and a fire-truck were called to extinguish the fire, but the bus was completely damaged.
