HOUSTON (AP) — Several students have managed to escape an Alief Independent School District bus that caught fire and exploded in southwest Houston.

The driver of the school bus was transporting 13 students home from summer school at Holmquist Elementary school Monday when he smelled smoke and stopped the bus. The driver had the students exit the bus, which caught fire and exploded moments later.

No one was injured during the incident. Alief ISD sent another bus to transport the students.
