Whats wrong with people these days? The place is going nuts?

Passenger sets bus driver alight in Brisbane. . . . . . 33 mins ago

A bus driver has died after a man poured flammable liquid on him and set him alight at a bus stop at Moorooka in Brisbane's south, police say.

Six people were on the council bus at the time of the attack, Superintendent Jim Keogh said, with a number treated for minor injuries and smoke inhalation.

Onlookers broke through the back doors of the bus to get the passengers out.

Superintendent Keogh said the 29-year-old driver was set on fire after being doused in fuel as a man got on the bus at the Moorvale shops.

A 48-year-old man has been taken into police custody over the attack, which police said appeared to be random.

"Words escape me, it's a horrific incident here in the quiet suburb of Moorooka," Superintendent Keogh said at the scene.

"A bus driver, going about doing his business, supporting the community, has had his life taken from him in what is a senseless and needless act.

"The fire was substantial, he would have stood little chance."

Superintendent Keogh said the passengers were visibly shaken and considered themselves lucky.

"It's lucky the whole bus didn't become engulfed in flames.

"They are traumatised.

"It was rather rapid." Taxi driver Aguek Nyok was walking past the bus when the fire started and said he kicked in the bus's back door to free trapped passengers.

"Unfortunately I couldn't go inside because there were fumes," he said.

"It was smoky, you can't even think of going there, and the fire was getting higher and higher."

One witness said she helped passengers, including some young children, get off the bus.

"They were lucky to survive," she said.

"[They were] just small children, [their] mum was screaming.

"I was scared."

Aster Benebru, the owner of a nearby bakery, said her shop on Beaudesert Road was closed at the time of the fire, but she gave a man an extinguisher to help battle the blaze.

"When I go I saw the bus burn, smoke coming [out]," she said.

Inbound lanes of Beaudesert Road have been closed with diversions in place.

Have I become your enemy, because I tell you the truth.

I'll be a fool for truth's sake. Truth is fallen in the street. I wont pass it by. I'll pick it up and embrace it regardless of the costs.
