The Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) said they are conducting a collaborative investigation into the fire that destroyed a tour bus carrying tourists on Tuesday.
Police said they are collaborating with the BVI Tourist Board and the Taxi & livery Commission.
According to an official statement from the RVIPF, “the driver of the said bus was travelling uphill on the Joe’s Hill Public Road when the bus encountered mechanical difficulty resulting in the front portion of the bus bursting into flames”.
The driver and tourists on board managed to disembark the vehicle without injury, police confirmed.
“The fire was completely extinguished without any damage to property in the area and the tourists were allowed to continue their tour on a different bus,” police added.
