Previous accidents

Last year, a man ignited a bucket of petrol on an overcrowded bus in the southern city of Chengdu.

The bus had sealed windows and no emergency exits, preventing escape, which ultimately resulted in the deaths of 27 people.

That fire prompted safety checks for public buses and driver training around the country.
