The Doolittle fire protection district responded to a bus fire at

the eastbound rest area of I-44 Wednesday night.

The bus was loaded with soldiers from Fort Leonard Wood. They'd been on the way to St. Louis for Christmas vacation. No one was hurt.

On Tuesday night, a bus heading to Fort Leonard Wood burst into flames east of Marshfield. The driver got out of the empty bus safely. That bus was on the way to the base to pick up a load of soldiers.
