No one injured as bus engine catches fire

A Morales bus drove into problems on one of the city’s highways early this morning. When the bus reached Gardenia Village in the Belize District, a fire occurred under the hood. The driver took a fire extinguisher that was located at the entrance of the vehicle, lifted the enclosure for the engine and quelled the flame. The bus was being inspected this morning by a Morales employee who says that the mechanic needs to change some wires, possibly the fan and the fan belt. The bus was carrying numerous passengers, but no one was injured.

    This bus always racing anyway-the engine overheated

    A small incident, and no harm done. But it illustrates a problem we all know — GOB is lazy, lazy, lazy when it comes to inspecting buses. They wait until AFTER someone falls out or a bus catches fire to get off their chairs and do anything. What are they paid for?
