FULLERTON, Calif. (KTLA) — Scary moments as a school bus carrying at least 100 children caught fire on the 57 Freeway in Fullerton on Wednesday.

Officials say the engine caught fire just before 1:20 p.m. near Chapman Avenue.

A truck driver pulled alongside the bus to let the driver know that flames were coming out of the engine.

She pulled over, and so did a few more big rig drives, who helped evacuate the kids away from the burning bus.

No one was seriously hurt. The students from Wickman Elementary in Chino Hills were on their way back from a field trip to Knott’s Berry Farm.
