Two buses from Foreigner and Styx's co-tour went up in flames Wednesday in Philadelphia, but firefighters extinguished the fires and no one was injured.
The incident occurred at 114 Callowhill St., an industrial area, and firefighters responded to call at 12:24 p.m. local time, arrived on scene at 12:29 and had the fire under control at 12:41, Peter Crespo, Philadelphia Fire Department's executive chief, told Mashable. (That was urgent — the fire-hose water must've been cold as ice, domo arigato.)
TMZ secured aerial footage of the fire from Philly's KYW-TV:
Crespo added that the cause of the fire is still under investigation, while Styx's publicist told Ultimate Classic Rock that "everyone's OK":
No one was hurt and there’s no cause determined yet. It's a Styx crew bus that caught on fire. All the buses for the Soundtrack of Summer tour are parked in a secure parking lot in downtown Philadelphia.
The incident incited a few Twitter users to reference Foreigner's 1981 song "Urgent":
Foreigner's Twitter account confirmed the buses were unoccupied:
Thankfully the buses were not occupied, Band and Crew are Safe http://t.co/Kg9BEFxyRE— Foreigner (@ForeignerMusic) July 2, 2014
The bands are still scheduled to play their next tour stop July 3 in Camden, New Jersey.
