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.
