MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – An empty bus caught fire as students were lining up in the hallway for the buses at Hazel Green Elementary Monday afternoon.

School officials say that no one was injured in the incident, students were never outside, and all the bus riders were eventually taken to their destination.

Tim Hall with Madison County Schools says the fire was actually discovered by another driver who pulled up behind the one on fire.   A number of bus drivers grabbed their fire extinguishers and school personnel used some of the school extinguishers until the Hazel Green Volunteer Fire Department arrived.

Hall says they are not sure what caused the fire at this time, but the bus is a total loss.
