The students were from Monarch Academy in Baltimore, Maryland, and were uninjured in the crash. The bus driver was treated on-scene by paramedics, then transported to a hospital to treat smoke inhalation, the article stated.
The Mayor of Baltimore, Catherine Pugh, commended the bus driver’s work in a Twitter post.
“So very grateful to this dedicated and responsive school bus driver who saw danger and prevented it from affecting the children in his care. I look forward to thanking him personally, as I know the many parents do as well!”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
