Cancun, Q.R. — To the shock of passersby, a Cancun city transit bus suddenly burst into flames Sunday while it was parked outside the Plaza Las Américas shopping center.
Those near the burning Turican bus shot video and photos of the unit as it was quickly engulfed in flames. Flames shot high enough into the air to also reach overhead CFE lines. Authorities from the Benito Juárez Transit Team, Cancún Civil Protection and Heroic Cancun Fire Department arrived to deal with the situation.
There were no injuries reported in the burning of the bus. Eduardo Santamaría Chávez, secretary of Public Security of Benito Juárez, ruled out rumors the fire was intentional. A short circuit is being blamed as the cause.
