In a video posted to her Facebook page, Goldberg assured fans that she wasn't hurt and thanked them for an outpouring of support following the scary incident.

"Hey, I'm fine. I just wanted you all to know I was in Moncton [New Brunswick] — the greatest folks, greatest cops, greatest fire department. They put the fire out on the bus," she said. "The back of the bus is electrical, I think. The bus is not totaled, but I could not drive it back home. I'm fine. The drivers are fine. Thank you for all your concern and (blows kisses) to everyone in Moncton that made a great evening onstage possible."

Hey All. I'm okay. Thanks for your concern.

No injuries were reported, and police told the Canadian Press that it's currently unclear what caused the fire, though they suspect it was electrical.

Those who were attending Goldberg's show posted photos to Twitter and Facebook showing a huge column of smoke coming from the bus. The Casino New Brunswick, where the bus was parked at the time, was evacuated during the incident.

Goldberg posed outside the venue with the firefighters who responded to the scene and who then posted the photo to their Facebook page.

Pretty cool of Whoopi Goldberg to take the time to have a photo with our Brothers from IAFF Local 999 Moncton Firefighters Association, especially since they were there to put out the fire on her tour bus.
