The front bumper appears to be hanging down after crashing into the bus, which stopped at a bus stop on the bypass, also known as the A240.
AA Traffic News reports that traffic is backing up in the area as the road is closed as a result of the accident and that the 406 bus route is on a diversion.
In the background of the video, taken just after 7.20am this morning, emergency services can be heard arriving at the scene.
It is not known if anyone was injured in the incident and the cause of the fire is unknown
Surrey Police confirmed there were only minor injuries and the road remained closed.
A spokesman said: “The A240 Kingston Road is closed outside the Queen Adelaide Pub towards Epsom as an RTC has resulted in a fire.
“Only minor injuries. The fire is out and the salvage is on the way. Please find an alternative route.’
The fire was extinguished within an hour of reporting the incident and photos from the scene show both vehicles sustained significant fire damage.
Surrey Fire and Rescue and TfL have been contacted.
According to the police, the fire was extinguished about an hour after the incident became known
