A bus heading to the city caught fire on Wednesday at Kyulu area, near Mtito Andei Town, under unclear circumstances.

No one was injured in the afternoon accident that involved a Modern Coast Express Limited bus.

All the passengers on board were evacuated before the fire engulfed the bus.

The company, in a statement on their Facebook page, said the bus had left Mombasa at 8:30am headed for Nairobi.

“All passengers have been evacuated on time and are safe,” read the post.

Kibwezi OCPD Leonard Kimaiyo said that the bus developed “a mechanical problem” before it burst into flames.

Volunteers attempted to fight the fire in vain.
