A tour bus that was leaving the Hoover Dam with dozens of tourists aboard caught fire as it exited the attraction, according to officials.
According to Bureau of Reclamation spokeswoman Rose Davis, the bus exited a parking lot near the Hoover Dam Visitor Center at 4 p.m. on Monday afternoon when the fire starts.
The 59 passengers and one tour guide that were on the bus, all exited safely. The bus quickly became engulfed in flames. No one was injured.
The accident caused traffic to be backed up on the U.S. 93 near the Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge.
Authorities said that the road would reopen the next day and that the dam would be open for visitors.
