A close call for a driver and student as a school bus caught on fire in Owego Tuesday afternoon.

The call came in just before 4:00 p.m. for a fully involved bus fire. The bus was from the Owego-Apalachin district. The district sent a second bus to get the driver and one student who was in the bus at the time.

Both made it out safely. The Newark Valley fire department also responded. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
