Double-decker bus on fire

Whitfield Road, Biddlesden

Two appliances and crews from Buckingham attended.

The engine compartment of a double-decker bus was 100 per cent involved in fire. Smoke was issuing from the rear of the bus when they arrived.

The firefighters used:

  • Two sets of breathing apparatus
  • Two hose reels
  • One fog spike
  • A thermal imaging camera

They used an environmental pack to mop up a small amount of spilled diesel.

Approximately 10 per cent of the bus was involved in the fire and suffered from smoke damage.
