A coach bus caught fire 2 kilometers from the Nanling Tunnel on the Xiamen-Fuzhou Expressway, September 28, 2014. The driver and all passengers successfully escaped and no injuries were reported. 
 
The coach bus was carrying more than 30 passengers from Xiamen to Fuzhou when it suddenly caught fire for unknown reasons at the section 2 kilometers away from the Nanling Tunnel of the Xiamen-Fuzhou Expressway. When the driver was smoke coming out from the rear of the bus, he stopped the coach at the road hump immediately and evacuated the passengers. After the evacuation, he called 119 and tried to put out the fire using a fire extinguisher, but failed due to the intensity and size of the fire. 
 
7 firemen and a water tank truck were dispatched to the scene of the fire and it took them 25 minutes to put out the fire completely.
