Unplanned transfer for Route 120 riders after fire call

We checked out a “car fire” call at Delridge/Holden and discovered it was actually that Metro Route 120 bus. Not a major fire – the two dispatched engines that were dismissed from the call fairly quickly – but the riders on board had to transfer to another bus to complete their trip, and the coach is at the roadside awaiting attention.

    Any details as to what and where?  Engine or a passenger lighting up a bit too vigorously?

      No idea as SFD’s short visit – five minutes on scene – was over before we got there. Patrick reported it reeked, however, so something external.

        Appreciate the info, you can’t report what isn’t given of course.  ;)

    I’ve been on a metro bus that caught fire while in the I-5 express lanes in the morning commute. The back section of the bus filled with smoke and it was so packed the driver couldn’t see it or hear us yelling. He finally saw the flames in his side mirror. Pulled over in the gore point from the Lake City Way entrance and another bus entering the express lanes blocked the ramp so we could get across safely and we packed on his bus.  It’s scary. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
