The California Highway Patrol on Monday said a limousine fire that killed five nurses trapped in the back was sparked by a mechanical problem.
CHP Captain Mike Maskarich says the blaze broke out on the San Mateo-Hayward Bridge on May 4 because of a catastrophic failure of the rear suspension system.
Authorities say no charges will be filed. The Public Utilities Commission is fining the limo operator $1,500 for having more passengers than allowed.
