Bus on fire - level 1

Bus on fire - level 1

28-05-2014 15:00

This happens in the USA. A school bus catches fire. It drives to a primary school. No children are on the bus.

The driver pulls over. He leaves the bus. He is not injured. The bus is in flames. At one moment, it moves to a fire engine. It is a dangerous situation, but the bus does not touch the fire engine. We don’t know why the fire happened. People try to understand.

Difficult words: pull over (move to the side of the road), injured (have problems with the body), fire engine (big car that stops fire).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
