Fire blaze in Peru’s bus killed at least 20

A fire broke out in a bus at Peru’s capital, at least 20 people died in the accident. The incident took place at Fiori terminal in Lima’s northern San Martin de Porres district on Sunday night. Fire department spokesman Lewis Mejia said on Sunday, “the blaze took place while the bus was at a stop where poor people catch buses, often at lower fares than the formal, more-regulated bus stops.”

According to the authorities, an electrical fault led to the blaze in the vehicle. Mr Mejia added, “most of the dead were on the second deck of the burned bus, which was from the company Sajy Bus. The vehicle didn’t have fire extinguishers. It was reportedly an interprovincial bus heading to a northern city.”
