Antelope Valley Press - - News -

LOS AN­GE­LES (CNS) — Los An­ge­les fire­fight­ers put out a fire Satur­day that de­stroyed two liq­uid propane-pow­ered pas­sen­ger buses and dam­aged a third at Los An­ge­les In­ter­na­tional Air­port, of­fi­cials said.

The fires were re­ported around 9 p.m. near the Uber and Lyft pickup lots, Los An­ge­les Fire De­part­ment spokesman Brian Humphrey said. It took 25 fire­fight­ers less than 20 min­utes to put out the flames.

The fire tem­po­rar­ily closed the LAX-it fa­cil­ity, but it was par­tially re­opened af­ter the flames were ex­tin­guished. Those ex­it­ing LAX were asked to fol­low di­rec­tions of air­port staff un­til fur­ther no­tice, Humphrey said.

“Though the fire’s cause re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, there is no rea­son to con­sider it sus­pi­cious at this time,” he said.
