Phuket tour bus on fire at Patong Hill

PHUKET: The Phuket Gazette this morning received reports of yet another bus catching fire – this time on the busy road over Patong Hill, joining the popular tourist town of Patong with Phuket Town.

No injuries were reported.

Motorists are urged to exercise extreme caution – and patience – while traveling over the steep hill.

The Gazette will report more details as they come in.

The bus fire today follows another on Tuesday this week, when Finnish tourists were forced to evacuate the bus they were traveling on to see the sights at Phuket’s iconic Cape Phromthep.
