A bus was evacuated due to a fire on Thursday afternoon in Louvain-la-Neuve, we learned from the Walloon Brabant emergency zone.
The Walloon Brabant firefighters were called to intervene shortly after 4.30 p.m. at Avenue Jean Monnet in Louvain-la-Neuve where a vehicle from the TEC company had just caught fire. All the occupants were safely evacuated. The origin of the incident remains to be determined.
Rescuers were still at the scene of the incident shortly before 5.30 p.m.
The impressive smoke emanating from the vehicle was visible from the various districts of Louvain-la-Neuve but several kilometers around the university campus.
