05/11/11 49 W, 1 I - + 5 - 5 School Bus Burns in Edgecombe County


Here's something you don't see every day, a fully-involved school bus. That happened this morning on West Logsboro Road in Edgecombe County. The driver and 39 students aboard safely evacuated. The fire started inside an air-conditioning unit. Read the WTVD story.

Wait, the fire started where? Buses have a/c now?

Not a good day for the NC school system. We had a scool bus roll this evening in JoCo. Luckily there were no kids uboard nor the driver hurt. More or less waiting for SHP and traffic control.

Kudos go out big-time to the kids that told the driver, and to the driver for her quick thinking and ability to stay calm enough to get 39 children off the bus without further incident or injury.

looks like a good training prop at Sherman Harris (sorry Tramp could not resist)
