A shuttle bus carrying Apple employees from San Francisco to Cupertino caught fire this morning on southbound Interstate 280 at Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park, according to the California Highway Patrol.
None of the 19 passengers was injured. They were safely transferred to another bus, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.
The fire, reported at 6:40 a.m., was at the rear left side of the bus and was put out by firefighters.
Investigators do not yet know the cause of the fire, Officer Montiel said.
The two right lanes of southbound I-280 were blocked off, causing traffic to back up. The lanes were reopened shortly after 8 a.m.
No other vehicle was involved in the incident, Officer Montiel said.
