Paris public-transit operator RATP has begun a probe into a bus that caught fire in Paris on Monday and that ran on batteries developed by Bollore SE.

“The RATP has launched an investigation into the reasons for the fire, in which we will cooperate fully,” Bollore said in an e-mailed statement on Tuesday.
