Prince George, B.C. –  No  injuries,  but a BC Transit Handy Dart  trip was cut short  for the lone  passenger and  bus driver this afternoon.

Just before 2,   the  bus  picked  up  a passenger in the  Glenview Road area of the Hart.

Just a few blocks later,   an engine fire   started,  sending smoke into the  vehicle. The driver stopped the  vehicle, and he and the lone passenger  exited  without  incident.

It took  only a  few moments  for  Prince George Fire Rescue to arrive  on scene and  extinguish the flames.  The cause of the  fire in the engine compartment has not yet been determined.
