Kwale, KENYA: A Modern Coast bus, number plate KBZ 820N, burst into flames in Kwale County.

The bus which was heading from Mombasa to Mtito Andei caught fire at around midnight in Samburu division, Kwale County.

Kwale County commissioner Karuku Ngumo said no one was injured in the incident.

“No one was injured as it would appear that the bus had no passengers at the time,” he said.

He said police are investigating the reasons that led to the bus bursting into flames.

This incident happened barely 3 months after another bus from the coast collided with a truck and burst into flames.

The July incident involving a bus, belonging to Mombasa-based BusCar company, saw at least 9 people die and more than 20 others suffer serious injuries.
