Bus Catches Fire in SE China; at Least 47 Dead

The blaze may have been deliberately lit.

Quote:
A fire on a bus has killed 47 people in China, with authorities quoted as saying it may have been deliberately lit and they had identified a suspect.

Dozens more people were injured in the fire during rush hour in Xiamen, a port city in south-eastern China.

The fire ripped through the bus during the Friday evening commute while it traveled on an elevated road. A local fire official said emergency responders found bodies piled inside. The official Xinhua news agency said on Saturday that in addition to the 47 dead, 34 people were in hospital.

Investigators said early on Saturday that the fire appeared to have been intentionally set, Xinhua reported. Investigators found traces of gasoline on the wreckage, though the bus ran on diesel fuel, and its oil tank and tyres were intact.

"It's a serious criminal case," the ministry of public security, the national police agency, said in a statement on its website.

China has seen bombings and arson of buses and public buildings in recent years, sometimes by people trying to settle personal scores and also by people with overtly political grievances. In 2009 an unemployed man set fire to a packed bus in the central city of Chengdu, killing himself and 26 others.

Xiamen, a prosperous trading port known for centuries in the West as Amoy, was rattled by Friday's fire. The city immediately suspended service of the entire express bus system, known as Bus Rapid Transit.

Witnesses quoted by Xiamen's official news site said they heard explosions after the fire had been burning for 10 minutes.

because setting fire to a random bus filled with strangers is the best way to settle a personal dispute with somebody.

It seems like everything designed in China is intended to kill off a small portion of their 1 billion+ population.

There were nearly 80 people crammed into that bus.
