A number of passengers on a minivan travelling from Nadi to Suva were forced to get off the vehicle after it allegedly caught fire yesterday.

The incident, according to a passenger, happened near Nabukavesi along the Queens Highway. Don Tuicake said passengers told the driver to stop when they heard a noise coming from the engine but he refused. Police spokeswoman Ana Naisoro last night confirmed they received a report and the van was now in Navua and would be brought to LTA for inspection.

She said police stopped the van and upon enquiring, passengers confirmed they saw smoke coming from the engine compartment.
