Authorities say a Valley Metro bus was destroyed by fire on a Tempe street but all 23 people aboard made it off safely.

Tempe Fire Department spokesman Mike Reichling says the driver reported having problems with the air conditioner when the fire started around 4:30 p.m. Friday.

By the time firefighters arrived at the scene on Southern Avenue at the Loop 101 the bus was fully involved in fire.

Reichling says there were no injuries in the blaze. The bus is a complete loss.
