Fire destroys old bus at Ryan's

ONE of the largest bus companies on the Coffs Coast had a major fire scare at its depot after an antique bus that was undergoing restoration caught fire.

Flames broke out inside the Hurley Dr shed that holds half the Ryan's Bus Service fleet on Thursday night.

Coffs Harbour-based Fire and Rescue crews arrived on scene around 6.30pm to find the depot was filled with black smoke.

The restored bus was destroyed but firefighters in breathing apparatus were able to overcome zero visibility inside the shed to save the rest of the working fleet.

An oxyacetylene welding kit had to be cooled for more than an hour after the incident.
