Some of the group managed to flag down another coach while the rest of the party went to a nearby pub, grabbed a pint, and ordered a fleet of taxis.

Nobody was injured and everybody managed to make it to the game on time, the Clarets going on to win 2-1.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
