A sudden fire broke out in a Volvo bus parked on the roadside in Himachal Pradesh’s Kullu on Thursday. The fire brigade team reached the spot after getting information and brought the fire under control. However, earlier the flames had also entered the nearby forest. It is said that this bus was standing on the side of the road near the Vaishno temple here for the last three years. It is feared that some passerby threw a burning beedi-cigarette etc. and first the forest caught fire, then the bus caught on. Fortunately, there was no loss of life in this incident, but on the other hand the negligence of the local police administration has definitely come to the fore. At present, the police is looking for its owner.
