School bus destroyed by fire

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton fire marshal has been called in to investigate a fire that destroyed an activity bus at Eisenhower High School.

The bus was found burning in the school's parking lot around 2:00 p.m. Friday. No passengers were on board at the time. The fire marshal believes the fire broke out near the front of the vehicle. The cause of the fire remains undetermined.

LPS says the bus was used to transport students to sporting activities in Lawton. Another bus has been assigned to the school, so there will not be a loss of service.

The bus was one of the older models still in use in the district, and was a total loss.
