MANILA, Philippines – A Manila-bound bus caught fire along the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx) in Marilao, Bulacan on Friday morning.

Santrans Bus driver Romulo Bancoleta said faulty electric wires may have caused the front portion of the vehicle to catch fire along NLEx's southbound lane.

No one was hurt among the passengers who originated from San Jose del Monte, Bulacan and were bound for Manila.

The fire was put out at around 7 a.m. and the bus was towed away from the road to turn the traffic situation back to normal. – report from Eric Dastas, dzMM
