Bus catches fire in north China, 14 dead, over 30 injured

05 January 2016, 08:05

Beijing — A fire on a bus in northern China on Tuesday killed 14 people and injured more than 30, a fire spokeswoman said.

The incident happened in Yinchuan, the capital of Ningxia region, at about 7 a.m., and the cause of the fire is still being investigated, said a press officer at the Ningxia fire department, who gave only her surname, Wang.

She said firefighters put out the fire in 10 minutes, and that 14 people died and 32 were injured.

There have been several serious bus fires in recent years in China, some blamed on people who were mentally unstable or were seeking revenge against society.
