A Bulgarian bus caught fire on the territory of Greece, on the way to the village of Krushevo (near Sidirokastro, Serres, Aegean Macedonia), the Ministry of Foreign Affairs confirmed to BTA. 

No Bulgarian citizens were injured in the incident.

The Bulgarian Consulate General in Thessaloniki is providing the necessary assistance, as the transport company has sent another bus for the Bulgarian citizens to continue their journey, the Ministry further informed.

Thirty-three were the passengers in the Bulgarian bus that caught fire today on the territory of Greece, Tatiana Lazarova, the tour operator who organized the trip, told BTA. All are fine, the passengers left the bus before the fire broke out, she added. 

During the trip we were given a sign that there was smoke, we got off the bus and moved away, Lazarova said. The driver of the bus as well as other drivers tried to prevent the fire, Lazarova added, pointing out that the fire itself occurred afterwards when all passengers were at a considerable distance from the vehicle.

Locals assisted in getting people to Krushevo, the tour operator added. The trip is a day trip and all passengers on the bus that caught fire will be home today. We are currently in a mountainous area and so far we had no coverage, but we made contact with the carrier who owns the bus and another one has been sent to pick us up, Lazarova added.
