New York School District Suffers Latest Bus Yard Fire

A second bus yard fire in four months occurred on Friday night, while an elementary school play was being conducted at the middle school, reported lohud.com.

Many children did see the fire in progress and were brought back into the building or evacuated. The fire at the Byram Hills District lot in Armonk burned down six buses, but no suspicious behavior was found at the time, the article stated.

The fire was said to have started in one bus and spread to five other buses that were parked in a row.

In August, an electrical incident in one bus caused a fire to start and spread to two other buses nearby.
