The blaze, which broke out around 10am,  left a dense column of smoke which could be seen from miles away

The undercarriage of the TIB bus reportedly caught fire before the flames quickly spread.

It is not yet known what caused the fire or if there are any injuries.

The road was temporarily closed in both directions as the fire brigade battled to control the flames.
