Bus bursts into flames

 

Contributed

A Wilson's Transportation passenger bus caught fire at Blanshard and Fort St. in downtown Victoria Wednesday morning. 

The driver was the only one in the bus at the time, and  was able to get to safety before the vehicle became fully engulfed.

Photos and videos of the incident starting streaming in on social media around 8:30 a.m.

A large plume of black smoke was visible around the city.

The incident shut down Blanshard at Fort as crews tried to get a handle on the blaze. The route was re-opened just before 10 a.m.
