According to the bus company, the driver of the bus was in the middle of her daily route when she smelled fumes.
That smell caused her to pull over and quickly evacuate the children on-board.
That quick thinking is being credited for potentially saving dozens of lives. Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the fire but believe a mechanical failure in the engine could be to blame.
