Norman High band OK after bus catches fire

LAWTON, Okla. — Members of the Norman High School band are OK after a charter bus they were riding in caught fire while on the way to a band competition.

The bus was on Interstate 44 in Comanche County when it had a mechanical problem on Tuesday that led to the bus catching fire. Officials say 43 students were aboard and all got out safely.

Students were on the way to Cameron University when the problem occurred.

All of the band's uniforms and instruments were left on the bus. There was no immediate indication whether the equipment was damaged.

Another bus brought the students to their destination.
