A double-decker bus erupted into flames in a Gowanus storage yard on Monday morning, filing the skies with massive plumes of black smoke.

Nearly 50 smoke eaters rushed to the scene near Second Avenue and Seventh Street, where firefighters declared an “all-hands” response at around 10:45 am, authorities said. 

Traffic along the nearby throughways was completely blocked by fire trucks as New York’s Bravest worked to quash the flames — which engulfed the entire bus. 

No injuries were reported, and officials could not comment on the cause of the fire. 

The owners of the storage yard were not immediately available for comment.
