RTA Dubai bus engulfed in flames
Thick plumes of dark smoke and orange fires filled the Karama skies yesterday after a bus erupted in flames yesterday afternoon, until first responders from Dubai Civil Defence arrived onto the scene and contain the blaze. It is unknown whether the vehicle was occupied with passengers or not, but terrifying footage from the incident showed empty roads and walkways as most residents witnessed it from their homes and from the metro.
RTA confirms no casualties were reported. The flames were contained within hours.
