Here's a little shuttle schadenfreude: last night, a dozen Netflix employees were being driven back along 280 to their San Francisco bedrooms when their bus turned into a bonfire. Fortunately, no one was injured.

According to a passenger speaking to CBS5, "We started to smell smoke and so we pulled over, got off the shuttle. There was more smoke and then there was a pop and then there was fire."

It was "like a scene out of a horror movie," says CBS5, noting the flames were hot enough to blow out the bus's windows.

While no passengers were injured, a nearby tree was incinerated in the blaze.
