Riverton’s bus barn caught fire canceling all bus routes this morning. The fire was reported at 7:00 pm Monday night. Only one bus caught fire, the other thirty buses were saved by the sprinkler system installed just two years ago. Buses in the barn are parked inches from each other so the Superintendent of Riverton’s School District said only losing one bus, was amazing.
Right now, bus drivers are cleaning the remaining buses of soot and smoke damage. The actual bus barn structure suffered some damage but was also saved from being a total loss by the sprinkler system.
