Eighteen private buses were gutted in a fire at SV Coach Works, a bus-building workshop near PES University in south Bengaluru, Monday. This is the third major fire incident in Bengaluru in recent days. The fire triggered blasts in the diesel tanks of vehicles, creating panic among residents in the neighbourhood. The smoke billowing out of the bus workshop was visible from a distance of a few kilometres. A police officer said, “There were no fire safety measures at the workshop. The owner has been identified as Srinivas and he is absconding. “The fire started from one bus and later spread to others. We are yet to ascertain the reason behind the fire.”
