School bus catches fire in Palm Beach Gardens

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - No students were on board when a bus caught fire on Interstate 95 northbound just north of the PGA Boulevard exit Friday morning.

There are no reports of injuries. The fire was reported at 6:09 a.m.

Chopper 5 flew over the scene, and large flames could be seen shooting from the back of the Palm Beach County school district bus.

The bus driver said he was heading to pick up his first group of students when the vehicle's engine light came on, and he smelled smoke.  The driver pulled to the side of I-95, and the engine quickly became engulfed in flames.

Crews arrived quickly to the scene and extinguished the fire.
