Antelope Valley Press - - News -

IRVINE (AP) — At least two dozen pas­sen­gers es­caped un­hurt af­ter a party bus caught fire on a South­ern Cal­i­for­nia high­way on New Year’s Eve, au­thor­i­ties said.

Flames erupted as the bus was on North­bound In­ter­state 405 on Tues­day af­ter­noon, the Cal­i­for­nia High­way Pa­trol said.

Revel­ers man­aged to get off and were es­corted from the in­ter­state while they waited for a re­place­ment bus to pick them up, the CHP said.

Photos from the scene showed the bus in the far left lane, black­ened by flames.

The fire prompted lane clo­sures on both sides of the high­way to ac­com­mo­date fire crews.

The cause of the blaze was not known Wed­nes­day.
