A large-scale fire is believed to have destroyed several buses from Rodoeste at the company’s facilities near Campo da Barca in Funchal.

The flames, whose causes are still under investigation, were fought by the Volunteer Firefighters of Madeira, with the police closing road access to the site. The Judicial Police has already been called to the scene, according to JM.

The various fire sources have been brought under control, but firefighting teams will remain at the scene for several more hours.
