It wasn't their sex that was on fire; it was their bus.

The band Kings of Leon had to postpone a London concert when one of their tour bus caught fire at London's O2 Arena early Tuesday morning. The flames quickly spread to a second bus belonging to the band. Both vehicles were burned out, but the surrounding stadium was not affected. Approximately 60 firefighters rushed to the scene, and the venue was entirely evacuated. Though no one was seriously injured, ambulance crews arrived to treat six unnamed people for smoke inhalation.

"Due to this morning's fire on board one of the tour buses at The O2, tonight's Kings of Leon concert will now be postponed," a spokesperson told BBC News. "While there is no damage to the O2, there is now insufficient time to rig the arena for tonight's performance."

Performances by the band are expected to resume shortly. The cause of the fire is still unknown. —KIMBERLY STEELE
