High School Bus Catches Fire

Several North Carolina high school students are safe after the charter bus they were traveling in caught on fire.

Small explosions could be heard as the fire burned Saturday night in Charlotte. The bus was filled with 56 high school students and parents returning from a debate team championship in South Carolina. The bus driver, a retired firefighter, spotted the flames, got the passengers off the bus and called firefighters. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
