New Delhi, Oct 31 (PTI) Thirty seven students had a narrow escape today as they were evacuated safely from their school bus which caught fire near Naraina today, a Delhi fire services (DFS) official said.

A call was received at 10:10 AM about the fire in the school bus and three fire tenders were rushed to the spot, the official said.

However, before the arrival of fire services personnel, local people rescued the children from the bus, the DFS official said, adding no injuries were reported and the fire was doused by 11.20 AM.

The students, from Kendriya Vidyalaya in Naraina, were on their way back home when the driver saw smoke emanating from the bonnet, the police said.

He parked the vehicle towards the side and with the help of passersby evacuated the children.

The incident led to traffic congestion on the route. The students, police said, were transported to their homes in another vehicle.

The cause of the fire is not known yet. It is suspected to have been caused due to a technical glitch in the engine, the police said.
