LAX fire destroys two buses
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.
