Police think the fire that ripped through a bus depot near Newquay was started could have been started on purpose.
At its height, crews from St Columb, St Dennis, Newquay, St Austell, Perranporth, Wadebridge, Launceston and Truro were battling the blaze at Summercourt.
It broke out at the Western Greyhound depot in the early hours of Monday morning.
No-one was hurt but almost forty buses have been destroyed, which is a third of the company's fleet.
Kelly Broderick's home backs onto the car park at Summercourt.
She said: "Just flames towering high. When I came over at that point, it was a double decker towards this end of the property. The flames were huge just building off it, but it was quite windy so the fire was spreading really, really quickly, thank God in the opposite direction to us.
"Once it had caught all the buses that were down there, the flames were enormous, fifty or sixty foot easily with billowing black smoke. It was really intense, really hot."
Check which services across mid-Cornwall are affected.
Devon and Cornwall Police are urging anyone who might have seen something suspicious late on Sunday evening or the early hours of Monday morning to contact them on 101, quoting reference GC/13/151.7:46am 16th May 2013
