JV team escapes spectacular bus fire

The only casualty from this high school football team’s bus fire

was the bus itself, which is amazing because, goodness gracious,

look at the flames coming off that thing.

This happened Friday in Portland, Ore., where the Central

Catholic JV football team was on its way to a game, and it happened

during rush-hour traffic. Everybody on the bus made it safely off

before it was consumed by flame, standing roadside in their

football pants. It took the firefighters forever to get to the

scene because of the rush-hour traffic jam caused by … the

flaming bus. The same was true for Central Catholic’s replacement

bus, which didn’t arrive in time to get its team to the game, which

soon was canceled.
