Rockers Kill Hannah had a lucky escape from their tour bus after the vehicle caught fire while the band was asleep.
The group, from Chicago, Illinois, was travelling through the Swiss Alps on Tuesday (21Oct08) when the incident occurred.
They were en route from Italy to France, where they are due to play a gig in Paris on Wednesday night (22Oct08).
The bandmembers were evacuated from the bus and no one was injured, although they lost all their possessions in the blaze.
A spokesperson from Kill Hannah's management team told on Tuesday: "They were sleeping and (the) bus filled with smoke and they realised it was on fire... something from the engine must've started it... the bunks are all pretty much melted... but everyone is out alive and uninjured, which is the important thing. Apparently the bunk section is particularly bad, some of the bunks collapsed onto each other and melted...."
As WENN went to press, it was unknown whether the band's upcoming tour dates, including a string of gigs in the U.K., would be affected by the incident.
