WT bus causes small fire

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. “The kids were evacuated from the bus and stomped the fire out,” he said. There were no injuries. PSPCISD superintendent Bill Wiggins said the bus in now in Amarillo to be repaired.
