FIRE crews were called to an unoccupied bus which was on fire in Chester Bus Station yesterday.
Two fire engines from Chester attended the blaze on Princess Street at 10.11am which was on the number 53 Stagecoach bus to Kingsway.
Cllr Sam Dixon, who walked past the incident on her way to a meeting in the city centre, said the emergency services quickly had the situation under control.
She said: “There was an awful lot of smoke but the emergency services managed it very well.”
Firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, tackled the blaze and used a high pressure fan to clear smoke from the bus.
Police were in attendance controlling the traffic.
