Wedding Party Bus Bursts Into Flames

NBC 7 San Diego

A limo bus transporting a wedding party burst into flames near Old Town San Diego Saturday, fire dispatchers said.

The bus fire sparked around 12:30 p.m. near the Old Town bus and trolley stop, just uphill from Old Town near Taylor Street.

Wedding party passengers and the driver were able to get out safely and no one was injured. The limo bus, however, was destroyed.

Firefighters knocked down the blaze within 15 minutes. Officials say the cause of the fire was electrical in nature. The investigation is ongoing.

Taylor Street was temporarily closed following the party bus fire, but the Old Town Station was not affected.
