A blaze that erupted on a double-decker bus in London on Friday was safely extinguished, but led some dramatic video footage.

Police said they are investigating the incident, which took place in a south-east London neighborhood, as suspected arson. Luckily, the bus was empty and no one was injured in the incident, the BBC reported, though many people posted pictures and videos of the billowing fire on social media.

“Although it looked dramatic, it was a simple fire,” the Lewisham Borough police department said in a tweet.
