Rome, July 12 - Another bus went up in flames in
Rome on Thursday but no one was hurt.
The bus caught fire at the crossroads between Viale Regina
Elena and Viale dell'Università, fire teams said.
Rome prosecutors recently said they were probing recent bus
fires in the Italian capital for suspected lack of maintenance.
On May 11 one bus burst into a ball of fire in the central
Via del Tritone between the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish
Steps, and another went up in smoke in the outlying Castel
Poziano district.
On May 9 there were two small fires on two vehicles, one
in the central Piazza Venezia where Mussolini used to make his
speeches. They were quickly put out.
There have now been 12 fires on Rome buses this year and
there were 22 last year. No one has been hurt.
City transport company ATAC and Rome Mayor Virginia Raggi
have come under fire.
The fires in Via Del Tritone and via di Castel Porziano
got huge international coverage.
Why Do Rome's Buses Keep Catching Fire? asked the BBC, which
said Romans "wearily noted" that ATAC and not ISIS was to blame,
and reported the social media hashtag #flambus which is based on
ATAC's former name Trambus.
