          A large fire has engulfed a passenger bus in Tremblay in northeast Paris, injuring one person and destroying the vehicle, witnesses and local officials say. There is no indication of a link to terrorism. (more)

The incident happened at around 7:30 p.m. local time on Monday when fire crews were called to reports of a fire on board a bus in Tremblay-en-France, which is a suburb of northeast Paris in the Seine-Saint-Denis department.

Footage from the scene showed thick smoke coming from the vehicle, and at least one witness claimed to have heard an "explosion" or loud bang, though authorities could not immediately confirm that. Photos taken after the fire was extinguished showed that the bus was completely destroyed.

Local fire officials said the engine of the bus caught fire and spread quickly, causing minor injuries to one person. It was not immediately clear if any passengers were on board the bus when the fire broke out, but authorities emphasized there was no link to terrorism, as some had speculated on social media.
