MANILA – A passenger bus caught fire along South Luzon Expressway (SLEx) on Friday morning.

The Manila Toll Expressway Systems, Inc. (MATES), the operator of SLEx, said a JAM Liner bus caught fire along the expressway's north-bound lane near Sta. Rosa Exit.

MATES said the bus suddenly went ablaze shortly after security cameras captured it emitting smoke at around 10 a.m.

The bus driver, conductor and all its passengers were not injured in the fire as all of them were able to alight the vehicle at a nearby gas station. – report from Dexter Ganibe, dzMM
