Gosh! Looks like it may have been 64014... :shock:
Citaro's have always been known for the combustibility in the engine department (Am I correct?)

I asked a few people at Worcester depot, including my son, and nobody knew anything about it. Clearly the gossip machine isn't working! I'll ask again in a few days time.

I'm still not at work, and probably won't be until after Xmas, so I supply any news to the Gossip Machine!

64014 seen back in service today on city route driving from the Butts/Shaw Street into Sansome Street. From my brief glimpse whilst I was sat in car waiting for traffic lights to change there didn't seem to be any trace of fire damage on offside rear; was this the bus involved in Malvern road fire?.

A tweet from HW Fire Control confirms that it was near the bus depot at 0949 and that the fire was in the engine compartment. The use of two hosereels and a main jet suggests that it was a sizeable fire though.

There is a picture on the Kidderminster Matters Facebook page which shows it smoking on the Island on the entry lane to the garage.

When I shopped at Aldi a few days ago, 64014 was parked at the rear of "the patch"
and the only "hint" of any damage was the lower rear nearside panel was in grey primer !!

It would seem quite remarkable to me if this is the reported vehicle, and that it's back in service already !!
