A Columbus school bus fire Tuesday afternoon caused no injuries, Fire Marshal Rickey Shores said.
Sixty children were on board the bus at 13th Avenue and Pou Street, near Hannan Elementary School, when a student and the driver spotted the fire coming from the engine compartment, Shores said.
“When the truck got there, the school bus driver had already evacuated the kids,” he added.
The fire was contained to the engine area. No one was hurt, Shores said.
Never miss a local story.
“The school bus driver did an outstanding job handling the situation,” the fire marshal added.
