NJ Transit bus catches fire on Route 23 in Pequannock

A New Jersey Transit bus caught fire while driving on Route 23 in Pequannock Tuesday evening.



A spokesperson for the company says the bus's rear tire blew out and the friction caused the bus to catch fire. The bus had just finished its route. No passengers were on board at the time, and the driver was not injured.



The fire department responded and was able to put out the flames.



Several people posted photos and videos of the fire on social media.



Traffic did not seem to be significantly delayed because of the fire.
