A commuter bus traveling from Washington, D.C., to New York caught fire late Sunday near the New Jersey entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, NJ.com reported.
"You can feel the heat," a person in a car driving past the blaze said in a YouTube video published Monday.
"Woke up this morning feeling extremely grateful after experiencing a horrific fire on the Peter Pan Bus," Young-Foye, of Brooklyn, wrote on Facebook.
"One of the scariest things I've ever seen… a bus being completely engulfed by flames and literally melting from the heat," Jason Gellman wrote on Twitter.
The fire occurred in an area where lanes have been closed because of construction, WPIX reported.
Lanes were closed for more than an hour. At 10:40 p.m., police opened one left lane, and all lanes had reopened by 1 a.m., NJ.com reported
One of the scariest things I’ve ever seen... a bus being completely engulfed by flames and literally melting from the heat. Drove past this en route to the Lincoln Tunnel about an hour ago. Could feel the heat inside our taxi as we drove by.— Jason Gelman (@JasonGelman) August 20, 2018
