    DCL Bus Fire

    Another DCL Bus caught fire today on the freeway, it was evacuated and no one was hurt, but this is the second time in a year, the last one being in Aug 2004.....Hmmmmmm. I'm thinking they need to do a thourough inspection on these busses. MJ won't let me watch the news (Brother Bear Sing Along Songs it is, sigh) so I will update more after the 11 pm news....

    I wonder what the problem is? Most states have vehicle inspections once a year. For busses it is usually more often.

    And what makes you think this bus wasn't inspected recently? The bus could have just been inspected recently and something still could happen to cause a fire.

    Could be the fault of passengers....
    Could be the fault of the driver....
    Could be the fault of the operators....
    Could be the fault of the factory....

    Who knows?

    My comment was just that to have two such fires in a short period of time makes me think that there might be something wrong with that type of bus. From the pictures it looks like the fire was underneath the bus.
