POLSON, Mont. (AP) - A flat tire sparked a fire Wednesday that destroyed a Polson school bus.

School officials say no one was hurt.

Doug Duncan runs the school district bus garage. He says it appears the inside tire on the rear driver's side went flat without the driver's knowledge, creating enough heat to catch both tires on fire. The bus was quickly evacuated without any injuries.

The bus was gutted and a total loss.

It happened about 7:45 a.m., two miles north of Polson on Tower Road.

Another bus was dispatched to carry students to school.
