Fire scorches school bus at Eastmont bus garage


EAST WENATCHEE- Douglas County Fire District 2 responded to a bus fire yesterday (Thu) morning at the Eastmont bus garage on the 300 block of 6th street N.E.

Fire investigator Brian Brett says fortunately, one of the departments volunteer firefighters, Kyle Dennis, works at the bus garage and because of his quick thinking, saved other buses from catching fire.

The fire began around 11:30 a.m. and was confined to the front of the bus. The school district is still evaluating whether to repair it or consider buying a new one.
