Not an RV fire, but still scary

This is a link to a charter bus fire in Hernando County, FL. Thankfully, the only one on board was the driver who got out safely. It was headed to pick up a load of high school students.

Last time I was on a bus that caught fire.... Everybody got off safely, the fire self extinguished, the fire dept certified it as safe and the driver picked most of us up again a few blocks away at the bus depot.

Turns out it was an electrical fire, a short circuit burned out and normal function of the circuit that had been shorted returned......

Thankfully.. Greyhounds are Diesels and those.. Well they don't burn the same as Gas does... But still, everyone got off safely.

Most RV fires are MH's, and the majority (70%) of MH fires are in the engine area.
