JOHANNESBURG - Three people have been injured after a bus suddenly caught fire while transporting passengers in Pietermaritzburg.

Paramedics say at least 40 others narrowly managed to escape from the vehicle before it was fully engulfed in flames.

Officials say it's still unclear what caused the fire, but investigations are underway.

ER24 spokesperson Chitra Bodasing said, "The people were assessed by paramedics and found to have sustained minor injuries, but refused hospital treatment. Fire and rescue services extinguished the fire and the exact cause of the fire is unknown."
