Around 8 p.m. Wednesday night, firefighters were called to Sharp Bus Lines at 357 Maidstone Ave. East for a report of a fire.

Upon arrival, six to seven buses were engulfed in flames.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control within two hours, according to company officials.

The buses which caught fire were not in service and the blaze did not result in any service interruption for the company, with Sharp Bus Lines officials saying its business as usual Thursday morning.
