Apple shuttle bus catches fire after leaving SF

A shuttle bus carrying Apple employees from San Francisco to Cupertino caught fire Wednesday morning in unincorporated San Mateo County near Menlo Park, though no one on board was injured, a California Highway Patrol spokesman said.

The fire was reported at 6:40 a.m. on southbound Interstate Highway 280 at Sand Hill Road, CHP Officer Art Montiel said.

The rear left side of the bus caught fire. Montiel did not know what caused the fire.

No one was injured. Two lanes of the highway were closed for more than an hour and reopened at about 8 a.m.

No other vehicle was involved in the incident, Montiel said.

The employees were transferred to a different bus following the fire.
