Passengers were evacuated from a Newlands bus after it caught fire in the suburb of Paparangi, near the Johnsonville motorway last night.
A Fire Service spokesman said the small fire broke out in the engine at the rear of the bus.
"Passengers were evacuated from the bus. It was in Mark Avenue when the fire broke out," the spokesman said.
He said two fire trucks attended the fire and the blaze was quickly extinguished. No one was injured in the incident.
