Arson Suspected in School Bus Fire

Pike County Schools officials believe arson may be to blame for a Thursday morning fire which gutted a school bus at Turkey Creek. Pike Schools Superintendent Roger Wagner said the bus, number 0369, was parked in its normal overnight space near the bus driver’s residence when a fire broke out inside the vehicle at about 6 a.m. Thursday. The bus was unoccupied at the time of the fire and no one was injured in the blaze, Wagner said, adding that he believes the fire was no accident.
