KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A fire emergency on a school bus caused an evacuation just before the bus was going to start traveling south on Interstate 435 from the Front Street ramp on Tuesday afternoon. No student or driver injuries have been reported thus far, but the incident is causing a delay at the scene with one lane of traffic blocked.

As of 3:45 p.m. the scene is expected to be cleared by 4 p.m. according to KC Scout. FOX 4 is working to gather more information about the bus and where its students are from, and we’ll update this story with those details as they become available.
