Thursday evening, in the early evening, a bus from the TBM network caught fire on avenue de Gaulle, in Saint-Médard-en-Jalles, north-west of Bordeaux, while it was in service.

This car running on natural gas was carrying about fifteen passengers when flames arose, for a reason for the moment unexplained.

The driver of Lianes 3, as well as all the travelers were able to get out of the bus and escape unscathed.

The firefighters and gendarmes intervened on the spot to install a security perimeter, before the vehicle exploded and was completely charred.

The mayor of the town, Stéphane Delpeyrat-Vincent, indicated on social networks that an investigation was going to be carried out "to understand the mechanical origin of the fire".

Ten days ago in Talence, a Keolis bus was destroyed by the flames.

But this time it was a diesel vehicle.
