Small fire on bus carrying Hastings boys soccer team closes lane of 35E
A bus carrying the Hastings boys soccer team to their game in Roseville Thursday night caught fire, shutting down one lane of Interstate 35E during rush-hour traffic in St. Paul. The fire was minor and was quickly extinguished by the bus driver and the St. Paul Fire Department.
A brake line had apparently ruptured. Every time the bus driver applied the brakes on the bus, brake fluid was hitting the brake pads, and flames would flare up.
