GRAND RAPIDS TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) Authorities say a western Michigan school bus driver quickly evacuated about 20 students from a bus just minutes before it went up in flames.
MLive.com says no one was injured when Forest Hills Public Schools bus caught fire about 7:10 a.m. Wednesday in Kent County's Grand Rapids Township.
The district says it's temporarily removing nine buses with the same make and model from service.
The driver called 911 to report the stopped bus appeared to be catching fire. By the time firefighters arrived, flames were shooting up from the engine compartment.
The fire scorched the front end of the bus.
District transportation supervisor Daryl Hofstra says the driver acted quickly in the face of danger. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
