A Lincoln Parish school bus was found completely burned this morning at the Ruston Junior High transportation center.
According to reports, employees found the bus rolled slightly from its upright position and completely charred from the fire that apparently happened sometime during the night.
“It’s not suspicious, but due to the location we are investigating all angles,” stated Eric Brazzel, Ruston Fire Department Public Education Officer. “It was an older bus with a lot of wear. It wasn’t in use and was actually going to auction in the near future. Theses things happen.”
