Fire Damages, Destroys 5 Texas School Buses, Foul Play Not Suspected

March 16, 2018

Investigators are trying to determine what sparked a fire that damaged or destroyed five Texas school buses parked in a transportation lot during spring break.

A statement from the Coldspring-Oakhurst Independent School District says authorities do not suspect foul play in Wednesday night’s fire. Nobody was hurt in the blaze in Colspring, a town of about 900 located 50 miles (80 kilometers) north of Houston.

Officials say four buses were destroyed while a fifth suffered major damage.

Administrators say classes will resume as scheduled Monday after spring break with normal routes and times, thanks to use of other buses in the district’s fleet.
