Bus on fire - level 3
A school bus dramatically caught on fire on a busy highway in Minnesota, but luckily no children were on board.
The bus reportedly started smoking then burst into flames near interstate 94 and the driver was able to pull over and exit before the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames.
At one point, the bus rolled dangerously close to a parked fire engine.
The bus driver escaped with no injuries. According to reports, the bus was en route to a local primary school and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
Difficult words: pull over (move to the side of the road), engulf (completely surround something), en route (on the way).
