Firefighters extinguish bus fire at Scoresby servo

Firefighters were called to a bus fire at a service station located along an Eastlink-Lakeside ramp in Scoresby at 9.42am this morning.


Three CFA vehicles from Scoresby and Rowville and several from MFB arrived on scene and brought the incident under control at 9.52am.

District 13 Commander Matt Hirst said smoke and flames were visible and people were seen evacuating the bus.

“The kids were all safely evacuated from the bus and the vehicle was parked in an open area away from the petrol bowsers so crews could extinguish the fire,” Mr Hirst said.

“The petrol station was closed down for a period of time.”

There were no injuries during the incident and Ambulance Victoria was not required on scene.

A rear tyre blowout has been determined as the cause of the fire.

A replacement bus was organised to transport the occupants.
