Bus catches on fire on the Schuylkill Expressway in Montgomery County

The Schuylkill Expressway is open in Montgomery County once again this morning after being shut down for hours due to a bus fire Friday night.

Action News has obtained brand new video which shows how high the flames shot into the night air.

The bus had more than 50 people on board at 8 p.m. Friday night when it caught fire in the eastbound lanes of the Schuylkill near the King of Prussia exit.

State police say members of the Southern Virginia University's lacrosse team were on board that bus.

They were able to escape the inferno unharmed, and with their equipment.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
