    Tour Bus Catches Fire on I-76

    Emergency crews are at the scene of a tour bus fire on I-76.

    Police say the bus caught fire Saturday morning just past the Girard exit. Firefighters were able to control the flames shortly after. No injuries have been reported yet.

    All eastbound lanes were closed from Montgomery Drive to Girard Avenue due to the fire. They have since reopened. Traffic is still backed up however on I-76 east and I-76 west.

    While those lanes are open, the Exit 1-A ramp in New Jersey connecting I-76 East to I-295 South will be closed for the entire weekend due to construction work.

    The ramp was closed Friday night and will remain closed until 5 a.m. on Monday, according to the NJ Department of Transportation. If you’re driving in that direction, use Exit 1B and follow detour signs to the ramp for 295 Southbound. You can also take Route 42 South to Exit 14 and follow detour signs for I-295 Southbound.
