Today, Wednesday, September 16, 2020 around 4pm, a mechanical error in the brakes of one of our buses resulted in a small fire. We immediately called 911 and we received assistance from the Salem Volunteer Fire Department. Bus garage personnel used fire extinguishers and were able to put the fire out prior to the fire department's arrival. The fire department also doused the tire as a matter of precaution.
No students were on board during the incident, and no one was hurt. The bus has been removed from the fleet for repairs. The removal will not impact transportation tomorrow. We believe the damage was isolated to the brakes.
Our thanks to the Salem Fire Department for their assistance.
