Incident Number: 74696
In attendance: 1 x Stansted, 1 x Thaxted, 2 x Dunmow


Firefighters were called to a fire at Stansted Airport this afternoon.

Crews reported on arrival that a bus, positioned outside the terminal entrance, was well alight.

Due to the volume of smoke, the terminal was partially evacuated while firefighters extinguished the fire.

The fire was extinguished completely by 5.02pm. The bus has been completely destroyed, while much of the front of the terminal building has suffered smoke damage.

We believe the fire was caused accidentally by an electrical fault on the bus.
