Authorities in Saginaw County, Michigan say electrical problems caused a blaze that destroyed two school buses and damaged two more.

WSGW-AM reports that damage to the four Saginaw Intermediate School District buses from the fire on the night of Dec. 14 is estimated at $300,000. The cause stemmed from trouble with a system designed to prevent diesel-powered engines from freezing.

A district spokeswoman says the damage hasn’t affected transportation service.

The buses were at the Saginaw Township Community School District garage.
