A West Texas School bus caused a small fire around 5:30 p.m on Thursday, Nov. 17, 2011. The school bus was between Borger and Panhandle areas when a turbo charger went out, causing the bus to back firing, and filling the air with smoke and causing a small grass fire.
Lt. Stacy Nolen of the Borger Fire Department stated the fire was no bigger than six feet long and two feet wide.
â€śThe kids were evacuated from the bus and stomped the fire out,â€ť he said. There were no injuries.
PSPCISD superintendent Bill Wiggins said the bus in now in Amarillo to be repaired.
