A COMMUNITY minibus has been destroyed by fire in Steyning.
The 15-seater minibus caught fire in Dingemans Court, Shooting Field, yesterday afternoon.
Shoreham firefighters said the cause was accidental but the fire left the bus 80 per cent damaged by fire and 100 per cent damaged by smoke. No-one was hurt.
Eye witnesses said they smelled burning at around 4pm, though at first it was thought it was a bonfire or barbecue.
It then became obvious it was a minibus on fire, in the Dingemans Court car park.
By the time firefighters arrived the flames were ‘pretty high’ and the bus was completely burned out.
The bus was the spare one from the Community Minibus Association’s Storrington division.
