Whilst maintaining the cordon, a second interstate coach parked with the first bus, caught fire. ACT Fire Brigade arrived shortly after and extinguished both fires.
No persons were on the buses at the time of the fires.
Initial assessment by police and fire investigators deemed the fires as suspicious.
AFP Forensic Services are expected to attend the scene today (October 30). The cause of the fires is yet to be determined.
