A group of Melbourne Victory fans are lucky to be alive after a bus travelling back to Victoria after the A-League grand final caught fire and exploded.

The vehicle was carrying 43 people when the incident occurred on the Hume Highway at Holbrook at 5am on Monday morning.

One passenger was treated for smoke inhalation.

It's believed the bus struck a kangaroo, with a fire starting in the brake area shortly after.

"Yeah we hit a kangaroo and somehow ignited. Everyone was out safe, few people lost their belongings," traveller Hayden Atherton said via Facebook.
