Police have detained six suspects over a deadly bus fire in central China that killed 41 people and injured another six onboard, sources with the Ministry of Public Security said on Monday.

Inflammable chemicals, prohibited from being carried onboard, caused the blaze that occurred early Friday in Henan Province, the sources said citing the result of police investigation.

The 35-seat bus, which was traveling from the city of Weihai in the eastern Shandong Province to central Hunan's provincial capital Changsha, caught fire at 4 a.m. Friday on the Beijing-Zhuhai Expressway.
