    A bus fire was reported Friday on northbound Interstate 280 in San Mateo.

    NBC Bay Area's SkyRanger showed a white tour bus that had pulled over on the side of the freeway. Passengers were standing beside the disabled vehicle alongside California Highway Patrol officers, one of whom was clutching a fire extinguisher.

    Shortly thereafter, the people were seen climbing aboard once again.   

    It remains unclear what caused the flames as well as where on the bus they sparked.

    Further details were not immediately available.
