Bus on fire - level 2

Bus on fire - level 2

28-05-2014 15:00

A school bus caught on fire on a busy highway in Minnesota. Luckily, no children were on board. The bus was on its way to a primary school. The driver was able to pull over and exit before the entire bus was in flames. He was not injured.

At one point, the bus moved dangerously close to a parked fire engine. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Difficult words: Luckily (a good thing), pull over (move to the side of the road), fire engine (fire truck).

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