GLENDALE — After a second bus fire in three days, Glendale pulled 11 aging propane-powered Beeline buses off their routes Friday and brought in replacements.
No one was injured when an engine on a Beeline bus caught on fire just after 1 p.m. Friday at Central Avenue and Dryden Street. On Tuesday, another Beeline bus caught fire at Chevy Chase Drive and Colorado Street.
The removal of the buses caused delays on the Beeline routes along Central Avenue and Brand Boulevard. Relatively light weekend service probably won't be interrupted today and Sunday. On Monday, the city will draw from a large fleet of diesel and natural gas buses from Laidlaw Inc., which operates the bus service in Glendale.
The cause of the fires has not been determined.
