SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The California Highway Patrol says all passengers escaped from a limousine fire during rush hour traffic in the San Francisco Bay Area.

KNTV in San Jose reports (https://bit.ly/1UJ7VLJ ) Thursday that the fire happened about 6 p.m. Wednesday. No one was injured.

The CHP says six or seven members of a band were in the back of the limo when the fire broke out.

San Jose police say the fire was caused by a short in the electrical system.

The group, Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel, was scheduled to play at a club in San Jose on Thursday night. They remain on the schedule on the Rockbar Theater website.

In an unrelated incident, five nurses were killed in 2013 when a limo caught fire on the San Mateo Bridge.
