Miley Cyrus’ tour bus caught fire Monday night and was destroyed.
Well, that’s one way to go out with a bang.
The “Wrecking Ball” singer and her caravan were en route from the Houston leg of her over-the-top Bangerz tour at the Toyota Center on Sunday, making their way toward New Orleans when her ride apparently burst into massive flames, as seen in a short video her sister Noah Lindsay Cyrus posted on Instagram.
“Bus down!” the 14-year-old wrote, adding that no one was harmed.
“Yes, everyone got out safe no one is injured what so ever!! everything is okay!!” she said, though she offered no explanation about what caused the fire in the first place. However, TMZ reported that a tire had exploded and sparked the fire.
The younger Cyrus also posted a picture of the damaged bus’ interior showing that everything was pretty much destroyed.
She later shared another video explaining that everyone was fine and that there were no deaths, just “bus down,” and added more images of the wreckage.
Neither Miley Cyrus, her mom Tish nor her father Billy Ray Cyrus shared any news of the incident on social media aside from retweeting a handful of Noah’s posts.
“A tire blew, then the whole bus caught on fire,” a source told E! News, adding that Miley, Tish and Noah were passengers on that particular ride. No injuries occurred, though all of Noah and Tish’s belongings onboard were consumed by the flames. The two “literally don’t even have shoes.” the source said.
As of Tuesday morning, the family and the Bangerz crew had made it to New Orleans and were “trying to get a new bus and personal items,” the source told E!.
Miley Cyrus is still scheduled to perform at the Big Easy’s Smoothie King Center on Tuesday night.
The fire seems to be the latest newsworthy foible making its way out Cyrus’ tour. Earlier this month, a wardrobe malfunction resulted in the “Adore You” singer taking the stage in only her underwear in Milwaukee.
The 21-year-old also posted a concert picture of herself plunging her face between the breasts of burlesque dancer Amazon Ashley, who’s been performing with Cyrus since the notorious twerking performance during the MTV Video Music Awards last August.
And of course she’s been flaunting what appears to be a new “sad kitty” emoji tattoo, emblazoned on the inside of her lower lip. Time will tell if it’s the real deal -- though Cyrus is no stranger to tattoos.
In 2009, the “Hannah Montana” star’s tour bus overturned in Richmond, Va., and the crash killed the driver. Cyrus was not aboard that vehicle at the time.
