A KU bus caught fire Tuesday afternoon in front of Green Hall.

Captain Jim Saladin of the Lawrence Fire Department said the bus driver was heading east down Jayhawk Boulevard when he noticed flames coming from the back of the bus where the rear tires are located.

The bus driver then stopped the bus, went outside and extinguished the flames himself. Fire fighters arrived on scene shortly after and “cooled it down,” Saladin said.

Passengers were evacuated and no one was hurt. The flames were likely caused by an overheated mechanical issue, Saladin said.
