Bus Fire Closes I-95

Bus Fire 2A bus fire temporarily closed northbound lanes of Interstate 95 in Harnett County Wednesday afternoon.

According to witnesses, there were only two people on the bus and both escaped without any injury.  However, the fire quickly spread to the woods next to the interstate.

The Dunn and Godwin Fire Departments were assisted by the NC Forestry Service in bringing the bus and woods fires under control.
