Eau Claire HS students escape injury after charter bus fire

EAU CLAIRE, WI (WTAQ) - Almost three dozen Eau Claire high school students escaped injury when their charter bus was destroyed by fire as they were starting a field trip.  

Officials said 32 students from Eau Claire North were heading to the Federal Reserve Bank in Minneapolis -- but a problem cropped up before they could leave town.  

A fire official tells WEAU-TV that the bus driver figured that something was wrong with one of the left tires. The driver was heading to a transfer location when smoke and flames emerged.  

The students and the driver managed to get out safely, and another bus took them to Minneapolis. A company from Rochester Minnesota owned the damaged bus. Police continue to investigate.
