Pitt County Schools spokesman Heather Mayo says the bus driver noticed an odor at one stop, as a student getting on the bus he told the driver he saw a spark underneath the bus near the engine.

There were 15 students on the bus.

The driver immediately evacuated the bus and there were no injuries. Another bus came to take the students to D.H. Conley High School while the bus was towed to the garage.

There is no word yet on what caused the fire.
