43 Escape Local Bus Inferno

A lucky escape for 43 heartbroken Melbourne Victory football fans heading home from the A-League Grand Final loss to Sydney FC, with their charter bus catching fire at Holbrook.

Early investigations suggest the fire, that totally destroyed the bus around 5am this morning, originated around the brake region of the heavy vehicle.

Thankfully, all aboard escaped the inferno unharmed, with only one person treated by ambulance for smoke inhalation.
