Brno, Jan 9 (BD) – Just after they boarded a number 52 bus towards Žebětín, the police officers noticed a gradually increasing smell, before one of them noticed smoke coming from the back of the bus and alerted the bus driver. 
“She [the driver] interrupted the journey and, due to a possible fire, promptly let all passengers off the bus. The officers then saw the flames in the engine compartment and started using a fire extinguisher to put out the fire,” said police spokesman Pavel Šváb earlier today.
