STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) - An overnight fire at the Stevens Point school district bus barn has totalled a school bus.

Fire officials were called out around 11pm Saturday night for a bus on fire at the bus yard. When they got there, they found a shortbus fully engulfed in flames. Crews were able to get the fire under control in about 20 minutes. Acting Lieutenant Ron Hiebler says it was quick work by the department. "Ladder 1 made an aggressive attack on the fire in order to prevent damage to nearby busses."

Crews on scene said the cause of the fire was electrical. The cost of the totalled bus is about 49 thousand dollars.
