( Two tour buses for Foreigner and Styx’s Soundtrack of Summer Tour were damaged in a fire at a parking facility in Philadelphia on Wednesday, according to the local CBS affiliate.

CBS Philadelphia reports that “the fire started shortly after noon at a tour bus parking facility at 2nd and Callowhill Streets near Penn’s Landing” and the station has video footage showing the rear of one tour bus engulfed in flames and another nearby bus also on fire.

Firefighters were on the scene quickly and were able to put out the fires. The buses were not occupied and both bands reported via their social media pages that no one was hurt and the fires would not disrupt their tour plans.

Styx reassured fans on Wednesday, posting on Facebook, “Thank you for all of the tweets, messages, and comments. We’re all okay and the buses were not occupied. No one was hurt. Also, the show is still on for tomorrow evening in Camden, NJ.”
