This is the moment a bus burst into flames just moments after the driver noticed smoke.

The huge blaze tore through the bus and also damaged nearby homes and overhead wires.

Onlookers said the fire in Abercarn in Caerphilly, Wales, started just after the bus cruised up the hill yesterday (27) morning.

Locals said the driver got out after noticing smoke coming from the rear wheel, which popped, before flames licked through the whole bus.

A spokeswoman for the South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said: "At approximately 11:35am on Tuesday the 27th of October, 2020, we received reports of a vehicle fire on Penrhiw Terrace, Abercarn.

"Crews from Risca and Aberbargoed station attended the scene and extinguished the fire.

"The incident concluded at approximately 12:26pm."
