BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

A fire on a school bus is being called an isolated - even fluke - incident.

Beaufort School District officials said the buses are always inspected.

The fire erupted on the bus on US Hwy 17 on Tuesday night. The Beaufort High School girls volleyball team was in the bus returning home from a game in Summerville when it happened.

The head coach said they smelled something funny so they opened the windows. Then someone along the road got the driver's attention and got them to pull over.
