DART Bus Catches Fire in Rowlett

It was a close call for a Dallas Area Rapid Transit bus driver Friday in Rowlett when his bus caught fire.

An NBC 5 viewer Angela Buzbee shot video of the burning bus in the parking lot of a Walmart.

DART says other drivers flagged down the bus driver to tell him there was smoke coming from the bottom of the bus.

DART spokesman Morgan Lyons says there were no passengers on the bus at the time of the fire and the driver was able to get off the bus without injury.
