A massive fire at a Dan bus platform that burned 32 buses to the ground was an electrical fire, not terrorism, Israel Police and Fire and Rescue confirmed Sunday morning.
Israel Police reviewed security camera footage from buildings adjacent to the lot overnight and saw no evidence that an external source entered the compound before the fire broke out, they said.
Instead, the fire appeared to emanate from a single source, which spread quickly due to two buses being parked too close to one another in the overcrowded lot.
Police continue to investigate the exact source of the fire Sunday, and note that the investigation is ongoing.
Meanwhile, the Dan bus company has stated that damage from the disaster amounts to several million shekels – as each bus costs 750,000 shekel ($195,534) alone.
