Christa McAuliffe students safe after bus catches fire

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

YEEHAW JUNCTION, FL (WFLX) - All students are safe after a bus from our area catches on fire.

It happened on the Florida Turnpike, north of Yeehaw Junction Friday morning. We are told 43 students from Christa McAuliffe Middle School were on a charter bus heading to Islands of Adventure in Orlando.

Parents on the bus felt there was a problem, and then some students saw smoke. Everyone on the bus was evacuated safely, and the bus went up in flames.

Several belongings were lost including backpacks and shoes.

The students were able to get on another bus and continue to their destination.

Those who lost shoes were able to get some at a local store.
