OC Transpo bus blaze strikingly similar to 2016 fire - Ottawa - CBC News

By Steve Fischer, CBC News Ottawa, January 18, 2017

Last February, one of the rear wheel wells of a double-decker bus owned by GO Transit in Kitchener, Ont., started smoking. Then it burst into flames, destroying the vehicle.

Almost a year later, on Tuesday morning, one of the same double-decker bus models — an Alexander Dennis E500 — experienced a similar fire and fate in Ottawa. The fire also appears to have started in one of the rear wheel wells.
