Just before 8 a.m. Tuesday, units from D.C. Fire and EMS responded to a school bus fire in the 2700 block of Langston Place, in southeast Washington.
The first firefighters to arrive firefighters encountered a mid-sized school bus on fire.
Several passengers, including the driver, an adult aide and several children were able to safely exit the bus prior to the arrival of firefighters.
It took firefighters about 10 minutes to extinguish the fire. There were no injuries.
D.C. Fire Department spokesman Pete Piringer says the fire was likely caused by a mechanical issue with the bus.
