Students Safely Evacuated After School Bus Fire in Baltimore

Twenty Baltimore city students, ages ranging from kindergarten through eighth grade, were safely evacuated after their school bus erupted into flames last week, reported foxbaltimore.com.



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 the 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.
