A Manipur-bound night bus caught fire near Phesama mini hydro plant near FCI godown on Tuesday morning.

The exact cause of the fire could not be ascertained, though it has been suspected to have been caused by a damage on the exhaust pipe of the bus.

The incident took place some 7 km from Fire Station South, Kohima. 

There were however no reports of casualty or injuries caused by the fire, which was contained after three fire tenders reached the spot and doused the flames.

According to Fire Station South, Kohima, there were 15 occupants in the bus, including the driver and handyman, when the incident occurred.

The fire destroyed the roof, window panes, seats, electronic items and a drum of disinfectant, which was being transported through the bus.

The fire came to notice of the passengers, who reportedly quickly alerted the driver about the excessive amount of smoke that had filled up inside the bus.

As soon as the bus stopped and the passengers alighted, the bus was on fire.

According to a video of the incident that went viral on social media, huge plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the bus.
