PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- The tour buses of two popular rock bands were damaged during a fire at a parking facility in Philadelphia Wednesday afternoon.

The fire started shortly after noon at a tour bus parking facility at 2nd and Callowhill Streets near Penn's Landing.

Chopper 3 HD was over the scene where it showed the back of one tour bus completely engulfed in flames. A neighboring tour bus also caught fire and sustained damage.

Firefighters were able to place the fire under control quickly.

The tour buses, which were empty, belong to rock bands Styx and Foreigner. Both bands are in town for a show Thursday night.

There were no reports of any injuries.

The facility is located right off of I-95 and smoke could be seen from the highway.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
