On my relief trip yesterday I saw the 38 that was on fire. Seen tons of smoke and some fire coming from underneath the motor with stuff dripping on to the ground. Wound up seeing the bus today in the building. Took some pics.

One mechanic told me in all the years he’s worked, he’s never seen anything like this. Said they still gotta figure out if it was electrical or fuel that started it. He did say that both fires are both unrelated for sure.

Gonna see if the mechanics will tell me what happened tomorrow.

8.9.11 UPDATE : spoke with one of the mechanics and he told me that what happened was that the catalytic converter got plugged up and that’s what caused the fire.
