Among the dead were 11 migrants and a person who helped organised their illegal transport, the authorities were quoted as saying on Sunday.
The injured were taken to hospital and the owner of the bus was detained, they added.
The minibus caught fire and the flames were extinguished by firefighters. The injured were transferred to nearby hospitals. The identities of those killed in the accident were not immediately clear.
In July 2020, a boat carrying up to 60 migrants sank on Lake Van.
Turkey has been a key transit point for migrants aiming to cross into Europe. Migrants, mostly from Iran, Afghanistan and Pakistan, regularly cross the Iranian border into Turkey on foot before being ferried west to cities such as Istanbul and Ankara.
