    Bus Carrying UConn Students Catches Fire on Mass. Highway

    One of four chartered buses taking UConn students to Boston caught fire on a ramp to the Massachusetts Turnpike in Sturbridge, Massachusetts on Saturday in an incident passengers described as "terrifying." There were no injuries in the blaze, which closed two lanes of traffic, according to police. The students were headed from campus to a harbor cruise organized by a UConn student organization, according to UConn spokesperson Stephanie Reitz.

The 52 students on board were returned to campus by mini bus and will be refunded the cost of the cruise, Reitz said. Police said the scene was cleared by 3:30 p.m.
