NEWARK, Del. (AP) - A bus parked at a Delaware travel plaza caught fire late at night.

Sue Doanhuong tells The News Journal that she was on board a bus heading from New York to North Carolina when it caught fire late Wednesday. The 27-year-old says a few passengers, including herself, opted to stay on the bus as passengers disembarked to go to the Biden Welcome Center on Interstate 95.

She says another passenger woke her up to evacuate.

No injuries have been reported.

Logs from the Christiana and Minquas fire companies indicate crews responded to a vehicle fire in the area.

The bus operator hasn't been identified. The cause of the fire is unclear.
