This was the moment a fierce bus fire raged on in Harrow before emergency services got to the scene to control the blaze.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) arrived at the scene in King's Road around 8.46am on Thursday (February 9) as flames unfurled from the London Sovereign bus.
Nobody was injured in the fire, which was bought under control by 9.18am.
A spokesman for LFB told getwestlondon: "Five firefighters and one machine attended the call to a bus being alight outside The Horseshoe public house in Harrow.
"There was no request for an ambulance.
The cause of the fire is not known as yet.
Onlooker Dina Kantharia, 21, who had left the newsagent two doors from The Horseshoe when the bus was ablaze said the flames 'grew quickly'.
She told getwestlondon: "I was coming out of the shop and saw the bus on fire.
"It was horrifying, it grew quickly and we thought it was empty but you can't know for sure and couldn't go anywhere near it because the flames were so strong."
Sovereign buses have been approached for comment.
