The Greyohound bus with 47 passengers on board was stopped north of the Delaware Memorial Bridge around 2 p.m. The fire in the back of the bus was put out by the driver with a fire extinguisher, according to State Police Trooper Alejandro Goez.

An overhead photo showed the bus pulled off to the shoulder and passengers standing in a grassy area along the highway.

Bus 904 was headed from Norfolk, Virginia, to New York, according to a Greyhound spokeswoman.

Goez said two buses were sent to pick up the passengers to continue their trip and no one was injured.
