LOS ANGELES (AP) - A school bus has caught fire on a Los Angeles freeway but nearly two dozen students got off safely.
City fire spokeswoman Margaret Stewart says the driver noticed smoke Wednesday afternoon while on U.S. 101 near Woodland Hills.
She says the driver pulled to the freeway shoulder, where four adults helped 23 kids to exit. No injuries are reported.
Television news footage showed the bus engulfed in flames. Westbound lanes were closed while crews doused the fire.
Officials say the bus serves a private school.
