Fire destroys tour bus

ENON, Ohio (AP) -- A tour bus carrying 55 people on Interstate 70 near the western Ohio town of Enon was destroyed by fire early today, but all those on board escaped safely.

Tracy Young, assistant fire chief for Bethel Township, says the bus driver noticed sparks coming from a right rear tire as he was driving eastbound. The driver attempted to extinguish the fire, but the blaze quickly grew out of control.

Young says none of the passengers or driver were injured. He says it took firefighters about an hour to extinguish the fire.
