Student transit bus catches fire on Tennessee campus


A student transit bus caught fire last night on the campus of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. 

Luckily, no one was hurt in the fire.

Knoxville police posted a video of the burning bus Monday night. They say they found the bus fully in flames along White Avenue and 22nd Street.

KPD and UTPD assisted the fire department to get the scene under control, closing several streets in the process.

There were no students on board at the time and the driver was able to escape safely.

We’re still waiting to learn the cause of the fire Tuesday morning. We’ll keep you updated as we learn more.
