July 19, 2019 - 7:07 am

A group of kids were on their way back to San Antonio from Camp Buckner in Burnet, when their chartered bus erupted in flames.

Some of the campers felt the bus shake, and suddenly saw smoke, according to reports.  The bus driver immediately pulled over and got the kids, ages ranging from 6th to 12th grade, off the bus. Minutes later, the bus exploded.

Cellphone video shows the charter bus engulfed in flames.

Six kids were taken to an area hospital for smoke inhalation, but are reportedly doing fine.  

No other passengers, or the driver, were injured during the incident.
